CNNGo's 'best films and greatest actors from Thai cinema'
It's Asia Film Week at CNNGo, and with the Subhanahongsa Awards, aka the "Thai Oscars" coming up on Sunday, the travel website's Bangkok bureau has a new list to peruse: "The best films and greatest actors from Thai cinema."
It includes the likes of screen icons Mitr Chaibancha and Petchara Chaowarat and their 1970 musical, Monrak Luktung (มนต์รักลูกทุ่ง). "It is our Star Wars, our Wizard of Oz, the birth of modern Thai cinema," writes Cod Satrusayang, better known as @fishmyman.
I like that 1970's Tone (โทน) is included on the list.
Have a look yourself and see if there's any movies or actors you think have been left out.
