    We ain't Nate, mate

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 21/07/2017

    » Nathan Bartling, aka "My Mate Nate", is a hero to some and a low-life to many. The Mormon missionary-turned-local-YouTube star has been plastered all over the news this week once again -- finding himself on the end of public outrage after his latest stunt of trying to flatten coins on Bangkok's railroad tracks. The whole event may seem like an overreaction, but this hasn't been the first time that the 24-year-old American has angered locals and expats due to his juvenile stunts.

    » A woman who rises above the trauma of polygamy in Sulawesi; a Muslim girl and her transvestite father, who works the street of Jakarta; three sisters in a courtship game; a war veteran confronting the harsh aftermath of newly independent Indonesia. At the Tokyo International Film Festival this year, Indonesia is the focus of the Crosscut Asia section, a programme that telescopes national cinema for social and aesthetic angles.

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 07/10/2016

    » Do you ever just wonder what filmmakers or film critics watch to unwind? Or what was the movie that did wonders for them?

    Romancing Bangkok

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 26/08/2016

Bangkok Stories, a portmanteau of six films telling tales of brief encounters and nebulous romance, will premier tonight at the 20th Short Film and Video Festival at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, before going on to cinema and television release later.

    Will the best films win the Oscars?

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 26/02/2016

    » The Oscar night is also the Oscar-bashing night. It was always the night (or morning, in our time zone) of constant bemoaning and condescension, because the Academy voters, like most voters, always get it wrong, at least to million others around the world who believe, in our collective delirium, that we have a stake in this pageant taking place somewhere in Los Angeles. Things have taken a turn for the worse with the snap judgement made possible by social media; now the outrage and disbelief are so raw since they're aired in real time, on Facebook and Twitter, like I did last year when I was convinced that it was against every law of nature that Birdman, a well-crafted display of pretension and self-obsession, won over the more delicate Boyhood.

    The ultimate anti-hero

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 12/02/2016

    » From the very opening minutes of the film, it is made abundantly clear that Deadpool -- a character in the latest among Marvel's long slate of upcoming superhero films -- is not like any other superhero. While most other superheroes would be wracked with guilt from killing even a bad guy, Deadpool maims, beheads, dismembers and even disembowels them with joy, sprouting jokes without skipping a beat. He's weird, crass, violent and even downright sadistic in all the best ways, and that is exactly why he is such a joy to see in action, even if the film around him is only average at best.
