Limitless Cinema in Broken English

BANG RAJAN 2 (2010, Thanit Jitnukul, A+/A)

I like it very much that the film ends with the sentence, “Do you know why villagers have become strong? They’ve become strong, because you oppress them. And if you still keep on oppressing them, there will be Bang Rajan 3, 4, and so on.”

I think choosing to end the film with this sentence is one of the most important reasons why I like this film very much. I would have given this film only A-, if the film ends with the sentence, “We are Thais, so we must unite,” or something like that.

I also like one dilemma in this film very much. In this film, the poor villagers have to decide whether to allow other people who flee from the war to live in the same village. The food is very scarce at that time. If the villagers accept the newcomers, there may not be enough food. If the villagers don’t accept the newcomers, the newcomers will suffer a lot. I think this dilemma is very difficult.

  1. This is my reply to Black Forest in my bilingual blog:

    Thank you very much for the list of these desirable actors in Thai films. I think there are a few handsome actors walking around in BANG RAJAN 2, but it is impossible for me to know who these guys are. I didn’t know that Barnabas Manggunio is in this film. You have very sharp eyes.

    Yes, I also think that the actor who plays the son of Arun Pawilai may be cute. I wish his photos could be found on the internet.

    Sirut Wittayatawornwong in 32 DEC is extremely handsome!!!!!

    Poommasit Tungpinitkarn in DIE A VIOLENT DEATH is very cute!!!!!

    Takpetch Lekhawijit in AFTERSCHOOL looks interesting.

    Chatsoron Tanootipyakul in WHO ARE YOU is cute.

    I didn’t know that Akapun Namart is in SHADOW OF THE NAGA. The internet says that he plays a policeman in this film, but I don’t know in which scenes he appears.

    I like Kanawat Juntaralawon very much, but I think he deserves a better role than the one in WITH LOVE.

    I haven’t seen BIG BOY yet, but I want to see it very much, because I like Monthon Arayangkoon, the director of this film.

    I also like these ten Thai actors very much, because I think they are handsome.
