    The sound of silence

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 16/09/2016

    » As is true of most horror films, it's the silent, creeping moments of uncertainty leading up to the jumps-scares that create the most suspense, as audiences tense up in anticipation, hoping against hope that the main characters be spared any horrendous fate lying around the corner. Don't Breathe, the aptly named sophomore feature from director Fede Alvarez (who also did the 2013 remake of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead), embodies this philosophy to the hilt, taking its audience on a relentless train-ride of white-knuckle tension from start to finish.

    Tears of the common people

    » At 227 minutes -- less than four hours -- Ang Babaeng Humayo (The Woman Who Left) is rather short by Lav Diaz's standard. His previous film, Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis (A Lullaby To The Sorrowful Mystery), runs at seven hours. And throughout the late 1990s and 2000s, the Filipino master made films ranging in length from nine to 13 hours, something unorthodox, anomalous, even transgressive in the fast-food mentality of the modern multiplex. A four-hour film, any distributor would tell you, will scare people off. There's no room for patience and meditation in cinema these days.

    Impersonal charisma

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 16/09/2016

    » Performer and director Ladda Kongdach of Crescent Moon Theatre has quietly impressed Bangkok theatregoers for a few years with her focused, subtle performances, often in supporting roles and sometimes playing several roles in the same production. In her latest work, Parallel [Between The Lines], her second solo show (and first full-length), the artist takes us into her parallel universe to explore the notion of self and another self.
