Portrait of Poj Arnon, maker of Thai nonsense comedies

November 25, 2009

A portrait of director Poj Arnon: “The bottom line is: the man has been accused of making bad films. Stupid films. Of producing Trash scoffed at by people of taste (taste?). Of promoting crimes against artistic integrity by giving birth to the cine-hybrid that can only be witnessed in Thai cinema: the homosexualised horror-comedy, featuring gays and ghosts and gags, inwardly multiplied among one another into a species that's garish, vulgar and, hell, fun. In sum, many of the negative cliches associated with Thai films of the past five years have had something to do with the movies by Poj Arnon.”

from the Bangkok Post.
