    Muse, Published on 17/09/2016

It is a feel-good gathering; each of my three friends produces old photographs and paraphernalia harking back to the alleged good old days of 35 years ago when we had our whole lives ahead of us.

    Northern lights

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 23/09/2016

    » With over 400 movies on the slot, the Toronto International Film Festival was a feast and a maze. The latest edition of this North American showcase concluded last Sunday, with Damein Chazelle's La La Land winning the People's Choice Award, a bellwether for the bright Oscar season (Toronto, unlike other major festivals, has no prominent juried competition, instead letting the audiences decide the big winner). The festival is known as a launch pad for Oscar hopefuls as well as independent titles looking for distribution. It also features a strong experimental section that casts its radical net far and wide.
