Personal Quote:

New York is where I caught the cinema virus. Living there made me aware of art cinema and world cinema and personal cinema. It introduced me to the cinema of Fellini, Bergman, Woody Allen. And Jim Jarmusch cinema, of course. See more »

Trivia:

'Pen-ek' means 'is the best'. 'Pen' is the verb 'to be' but since Thai has no conjugations, it can mean anything from the present singular 'is' to 'are' to 'being'. 'Ek' is 'first' or 'the best'. See more »
