Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
95% Shadow (2019) The film's rain-soaked moodiness has genuine gravity and the fight choreography is inventive.‐ Bangkok Post

62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) The film only plays like a summary of Freddie's life, a bullet-point presentation of key moments, without angles or attitude, without ambition or even style.‐ Bangkok Post

63% Suspiria (2018) This Suspiria isn't something that everyone will find entertaining, but it's audacious and uncompromising.‐ Bangkok Post

92% A Prayer Before Dawn (2018) A Prayer Before Dawn is remarkable in its brutalist mode, in sketching the grainy lives of these jailbirds...to see how far the body, and in effect the soul, could endure the inhuman hellhole that is their everyday surroundings. ‐ Bangkok Post

79% What You Gonna Do When the World's on Fire? (2018) It's a film that's supposed to be about anger, but anger, though visible throughout, is couched in something more subtle, more unclassifiable, and thus more disturbing. ‐ Bangkok Post

85% High Life (2018) Sex, birth, violence, philosophy -- this is a visceral, feverish alter-ego of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, made with relish by a true French master. ‐ Bangkok Post

93% If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) The revelation here is the actress Kiki Layne. ‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2018
82% Green Book (2018) It's a mass-appeal crowd-pleaser augmented by a topical immediacy, and director Peter Farrelly (There's Something About Mary, Shallow Hal) has done a fine service to his best material in years. ‐ Bangkok Post

97% Roma (2018) A moving, ravishing, heartbreaking ode to the Mexico... This is a film so sincere and beautiful that, ideally, it deserves to be seen on the cinema screen. How about that, Netflix? ‐ Bangkok Post

80% Ghost Fleet (2018) Ghost Fleet has a patience and a length that allow it to bring more of a human story to the fore, and as a result reminds everyone that to balance human rights and prosperity is most challenging and indispensable.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2018
No Score Yet App War (2018) It features a cast of good-looking young actors playing programmers and marketers, and though the story loses its focus and goes a little erratic in its romantic part, it's still an above-average package.‐ Bangkok Post

99% Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018) Shoplifters is built on an outrageously melodramatic plot, but in Kore-eda's hands, it comes off as natural, touching and genuine. ‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2018
89% Isle of Dogs (2018) What a film to look at. Isle Of Dogs... is good or great or exhausting depending on how much you're willing to hitch a ride with the filmmaker's obsessive visual construction.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
94% Burning (Beoning) (2018) Burning is a slow-burn affair that will test, and reward, patient viewers -- not that all mysteries will be solved and gift-wrapped to our satisfaction, but the bottled-up enigma of the protagonists... will come blazing like a star. ‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
89% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary rises above the genre formula with its coolly composed formalism, its deliberate pacing, and its sly psychological manipulation that almost convinces us at certain points that this is more of a domestic drama than a horror movie. ‐ Bangkok Post

69% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) [Eric] Clapton emerges here as a person who has gone through hell and back and his storm-tossed journey, which is also a journey of music of the past 50 years, still rings with pathos and relevance. ‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
73% Ready Player One (2018) But with unruffled confidence and youthful velocity, the 71-year-old gambles that the thrills would override the insincerity -- that nobody would mind the self-defeating scruples as long as the breakneck ride keeps us glued. ‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
91% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) [McDormand's] sorrow, festered into rage, is the emotional epicentre of the film that strives to quake all the American fault lines, moral, racial and political, and she gives a gut-punching performance in a classic feminist register.‐ Bangkok Post

100% Season of the Devil (Ang Panahon ng Halimaw) (2018) Diaz is a filmmaker, writer and musician, and in Season Of The Devil he has found a way to combine all of those. It's probably one of his darkest films, and one that subverts the happiest genre in cinema history: musical.‐ Bangkok Post

No Score Yet Malila: The Farewell Flower (2017) A truly remarkable Thai film, Malila: The Farewell Flower takes big risks and makes it seem the most natural thing in the world.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
92% The Shape of Water (2017) ... the director's imagination gives it an authentic vintage texture and enough doses of shocks and blood.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
No Score Yet Homogeneous, Empty Time (2017) The iconography of power is everywhere in the film -- flags, billboards, posters, statues, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha on TV -- towering above the boys and the people struggling to make sense of them all. ‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
99% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) At its most moving, most humanist moments, this film by an 89-year-old filmmaker and a 33-year-old street artist is about the heartbreaking ephemerality of art, about mortality, memory and the transient nature of everything, above all of life itself.‐ Bangkok Post

84% Darkest Hour (2017) Personally, I would prefer a rerun of Dunkirk or The Crown. But what Darkest Hour lacks in imagination is made up for, to an extent, by Oldman's presence.‐ Bangkok Post

91% Human Flow (2017) ... Human Flow, despite its efforts and comprehensiveness, is at best a sketch...‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
84% The Third Murder (Sandome no satsujin) (2018) Kore-eda grows more philosophical in topic and aesthetics as he looks at the hard question about justice -- by law and by human, which is the same -- and in the end he confirms his place as one of the master filmmakers at work in the world.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
No Score Yet Die Tomorrow (2017) With the Thai film Die Tomorrow, writer-director Nawapol Thamronrattanarit tries to capture that rarefied feeling of the eternal fleetingness of life.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) ... The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is so conscious of its own dark, twisted nature that it comes off like an experiment -- a derivative experiment in anti-humanism.‐ Bangkok Post

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) For fans of the original, this should be enough to satisfy your soul (and nostalgia). For a new generation of viewers, the deliberate pacing will be a challenge, and in the end it's Deakins' framing, perspective and wondrous lighting that will carry them.‐ Bangkok Post

96% Cemetery of Splendor (2016) Cemetery of Splendour is the gentlest of war cries that rallies our personal consciousness to overcome the prescribed, unfeeling, unthinking doctrine.‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2017
No Score Yet Samui Song (2017) At times noir-ish, at times cheeky, and at times a little too self-aware, Samui Song thriller surfs in and out between straight genre exercise and winking critique of many things. ‐ Cinema Scope

88% First They Killed My Father (2017) Angelina Jolie's adaptation of First They Killed My Father is one that comes from the heart.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
57% Caniba (2018) One of the hardest films to watch this year, Caniba is also an intense and strangely engaging experience where art, life, horror and film intersect and move as one.‐ Bangkok Post

70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) The film has, to my count, two, or at best three, genuinely scary scenes, which aren't enough to redeem its overall mediocrity.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Theron throws herself into the colourful maelstrom and comes out (almost) unscathed. We need more spies like this, whether the war is hot or cold.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
No Score Yet Emmanuel Macron: Behind the Rise (2017) The film works, instead, as a campaign history and a personality sketch of this boyish, industrious, intelligent politician who, at first, seemed surprised by his own ascendancy. ‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
90% Pop Aye (2017) Pop Aye is gentle and playful, and Tan engages us throughout.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
93% Bad Genius (2017) Finally -- the first in 2017 -- we have a Thai film worth recommending.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2017
79% The Beguiled (2017) Atmospheric and bewitching.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
51% Ismael's Ghosts (Les fantômes d'Ismaël) (2018) The actors save it. Amalric and Gainsbourg especially make Ismael and Sylvia two people who we really care about.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
92% Dearest Sister: Nong Hak (2016) If the film seems to ride on the archetypal perception of female fury and suspicion, the two actresses, Vilouna and Amphaiphun, make it real and convincing -- something we didn't expect from what's at heart a horror film.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
66% Alien: Covenant (2017) You'll enjoy Alien Covenant, though you'll probably not be overexcited by it.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted May 12, 2017
99% Get Out (2017) Get Out is about how we should get out of our own abyss conditioned by familiarity and history, and it's one of the smartest films out there.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
43% Ghost in the Shell (2017) There's no other way for director Rupert Sanders but to take the material very seriously and transform the geeky essence of the narrative into popular entertainment for a global audience. At that level, Ghost In The Shell doesn't disappoint.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
No Score Yet Motel Mist (2016) Some will dig Motel Mist, others will leave feeling frustrated. That's only normal, but it's important that a film of unconventional sensibility and temperament gets a chance on the screen.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2017
46% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) (2016) It's not, as the mockery goes, the end of the world for Dolan, but it's hardly something we wish to remember this golden boy by, either.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
96% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) After The Storm will certainly warm your heart on a cold stormy day.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
98% Moonlight (2016) The best film among the Oscar's Best Picture nominees, Moonlight glows like an iridescent animal, tender in touch and sensitive to the complexity of life.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
93% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) A calm, quietly touching beauty, a fable about man, nature, family, the environment -- I don't know, life itself.‐ Bangkok Post
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
79% American Honey (2016) The film enjoys its moments of sweet hopelessness but at the end, in a sane way, this is a story of youthful hope. The US needs that as much as we all do.‐ Bangkok Post
