2005 has gotten off to a less-than-promising start, with the output from the Thai industry consisting of slapstick comedies, shrill action and shit-your-pants horror, stuff that so far hasn't really flipped my switch.
But coming soon is The Tin Mine, from director Jira Maligool (Mekhong Full Moon Party). A drama, Mueang Rae (The Tin Mine) is based on a true story of writer and former engineering student, Ajin Panjaphan, who worked in a tin mine around 60 years ago in Phuket -- long before it became an island paradise (and now a struggling resort following the December 26, 2004 tsunami).
