Personal Quote:

In Last Life In The Universe we wanted the audience not to notice when the music comes in or when it goes out. It's there to create atmosphere. I'm drawn to any style of music as long as it's sad. I'm very fond of depressing music. I think it's beautiful. My favourite musicians are Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Marianne Faithfull. 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 »
