Thai films seen on Wednesday, July 13, 2011

1.SIMILAR (Tulapop Saenjaroen, 23, A+++++)
คล้าย (ตุลพบ แสนเจริญ, 23)

2.UNTIE THE KNOT (Wachara Kanha, 33, A++++++++++/F)
คลายปม (วชร กัณหา, 33)

I give F to the real filmmakers of UNTIE THE KNOT, but I give A++++++++++ to "the act of sending this TV program to the festival by the person who doesn't make it". I think it is a very interesting conceptual art. I means I give F to this blatantly propagandistic film, but I give A++++++++++ to this conceptual art.

Talking with Chulayarnnon Siriphol, Ratchapoom Boonbunchachoke, and Wiwat Lertwiwatwongsa makes me like this conceptual art much more. Wiwat told me that Chulayarnnon had done this kind of thing before in a film event: showing a found footage in his own name. Ratchapoom made me realize that this kind of thing is extremely interesting; for example, if Prince Chatrichalerm sends NARESUAN to the Marathon Film Festival, I might give the film B+, because I think the person responsible for the sending of the film wants us to "believe" the film, but if Prap Boonpan sends NARESUAN, directed by Prince Chatrichalerm, to the Marathon Film Festival, that would make all the difference.

There are many things my friends discuss about this topic. I hope they will write about it in details in the future.
