Thai Cinema Uncensored
“Matthew Hunt has written a dispassionate and fascinating book which has relevance for film, contemporary culture and politics in general.” — Bangkok Post
“Thais and Thailand watchers will recognise the bigger story, an all-too-common narrative arc streaked with moments of fear, absurdity and humour, in Hunt’s lingering closeups on the mangled, hidden wreckage of film censorship.” — Art Review
“Thai Cinema Uncensored documents the laughter, the ridiculousness, and the fear behind our fragile façade. I hope that in the near future, this fascinating record will read more like fiction, a horror tinged with comedy, to our young filmmakers.” — Apichatpong Weerasethakul
