Aditya Assarat's indie drama Wonderful Town is back in London, playing until next Thursday (April 2) at the Institute of Contemporary Arts.
Commemorating the occasion is the British Film Institute's Sight & Sound magazine, which names Wonderful Town the "Film of the Month" in its April issue.
Tony Rayns writes the review. There's a lot to chew on there, and it might be the kind of review you don't want to read until after you've seen the film, but here's a choice excerpt:
Filmmakers like Aditya give the lie to all the talk of 'the end of art cinema' after the deaths of Bergman and Antonioni."
And Rayns has nice things to say about the performance of Anchalee Saisoontorn, who recently picked up best-actress prizes from the Bangkok Critics Assembly and the Kom Chad Luek Awards, as well as lead actor Supphasit Kansen.
By the way, Wonderful Town is wrapping up its limited Thai revival run. It's playing at the SFX Cinema at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
