SOME PEOPLE WANT THAI PEOPLE TO KILL EACH OTHER. WILL WE FALL INTO THEIR TRAPS?

–One of my most favorite films I saw last year is S21: KHMER ROUGE KILLING MACHINE (2003, Rithy Panh, documentary, A+++++++++++++++), which deals with the civil war in Cambodia. Vann Nath, a painter who survived the civil war, gave an interview in this film. I think his paintings are very interesting. And I hope Thailand will not experience civil war like Cambodia, Rwanda, or Yugoslavia.

Maybe some people want us to kill each other. Will we fall into their traps?

You can watch S21: KHMER ROUGE KILLING MACHINE in the link below:

–Two recommended films for Thailand: ROSEWOOD (1997, John Singleton) in which the massacre occurred just because of “a rumor”, and FINAL SOLUTION (2004, Rakesh Sharma), in which the massacre occurred partly because the politicians incited hatred among their peoples. I hope the events in these two films will not be repeated in Thailand.

You can watch FINAL SOLUTION here:

–Favorite quote from THE WAR (1994, Jon Avnet):”War is like a big machine that no one really knows how to run and when it gets out of control it ends up destroying the things you thought you were fighting for, and a lot of other things you kinda forgot you had. “
