The Bangkok Post has an interesting piece byKong Rithdee on the veteran Thai film producer Visute Poolvoraluks, who has just directed his first movie after 25 years in the movie business: “It’s rumoured he can judge if a movie will become a hit or not by looking at the poster (he said that’s an unfounded exaggeration), or from the title (that’s more like it). In his career, he has made several hits out of what others saw as hopeless enterprises _ from teen comedies Pluem and Chalui in the late 1980s, the catalyst of New Thai Cinema Nang Nak in 1999, the genesis of the Thai gay blockbuster Satree Lex (Iron Ladies) in 2001, the surprising-even-to-its-makers hit Fan Chan (My Girl) in 2004. Along the way, Visute has also cultivated his aura as a strict, confident producer who often ”finalised” movies for other directors, meaning using his authority to edit a work-in-progress, sometimes to the delight, sometimes not, of his colleagues.”
