1.WANNAPORN SUENGHIRANYAPRUEG (2012, Maythus Suenghiranyaprueg, A+30)
2.36 (2012, Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, A+15)
I like this film in nearly the same way as I like AFTERNOON TIMES (2005, Tossapol Boonsinsukh). These two films are different, but there are a few things in both films which I like, for example,
2.1 These two films seem to portray the secret love/fondness that a woman has for a man, and both films do this job very well, because I feel very much involved with the heroines of both films.
2.2 The atmospheric quality of both films
2.3 The disappearance of the heroes in both films
2.4 The search for the hero in AFTERNOON TIMES/the search for the photo of the hero in 36
Another thing that I like very much in 36 is the obsession with digital photos and digital memory.
3.NOTHINGNESS (สุญญตา) (2012, Pattamon Sawasdi, 9 min, A+)
This film unintentionally makes me think that someone should remake JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 QUAI DU COMMERCE, 1080 BRUXELLES (1975, Chantal Akerman, 225 min). But in this remake version, the three days in the life of the heroine (Jeanne Dielman) should have nothing special happen. The second day and the third day in this imaginary film should be as ordinary as the first day in the film.
4.MIDNIGHT BLUE (2012, Teerapat Jaroenpakdee, 30 min, A+10)
5.TELEPHONE LIE (2012, Niwaruj Teekapowan, 23, min, A+10)
This film reminds me of NEW GENERATION (เด็กโจ๋) (2008, Pakwan Suksomthin, 16 min, A+30), because both films portray psychotic girls, which is the kind of characters that I like very much.
6.NEVER DIE? (2012, Suparirk Ningsanond, 21 min, A+)
7.I DON'T WANT TO BE A DIRECTOR (2012, Isaraporn Koontisook, 23 min, A)
