Bangkok Screening Room will shortly be showing two polar opposite classics of world cinema. Yasujirō Ozu's Tokyo Story (東京物語) is a masterpiece of visual restraint, with its measured pace and stationary camera, and it appeared on Sight and Sound's decennial film poll in 1992, 2002, and 2012. Dario Argento's horror film Suspiria, on the other hand, is an exercise in Baroque excess, with stylised violence and Expressionist set designs.
Tokyo Story will be shown on 14th, 15th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 23rd, 25th, and 29th September. Suspiria is screening on 18th, 19th, 21st, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 30th, and 31st October; and 3rd, 4th, and 6th November. There will also be a screening of Suspiria on 20th October, with a live soundtrack performed by Pakorn Musikaboonlert.
