  • One of Thailand's oldest temples Along the Chao Phraya river It is a great place to eat fish, calm and peaceful, close to the palace after the shopping.

  • Although the temple is quite popular with the locals, the interior is far less spectacular than the more famous temples on the opposite river bank. If however you prefer less crowded and more 'off-the...  more »

  • Citizen Kane is a good film because it effectively uses film language on many different levels. The camera work and lighting are so meticulous that with each viewing there is more to see and appreciate. The way the film is laid out also sets it apart. The beginning of the film is actually the ending of the story because in the opening scene the main character, Kane utters the last words of "rosebud" and then dies. This sets the stage for the retelling of his life and the search for the mysterious origins of "rosebud". In Citizen Kane it is really the small things that make the film so effective. A good scene that illustrates this point is in the beginning when young Kane is playing outside his house and his parents are talking about what is going to happen to him. As his parents talk they are the focus of the shot and are in the foreground but in the background framed through a window we can see young Kane playing out in the snow. This type of shot is used later in the film when Kane throws a party for his newspaper. Leland and Mr. Burnstein are talking about Kane and we see a reflection of him dancing in a window, framed almost the same as the shot when he was a child. This film also uses low angle shots quite often which make the characters seem larger than life. These low angle shots are most noticeable when Kane is first starting out as an adult and after he loses the election. Mise-en-scene is also an essential element of this film. In the scene where Leland is passed out on his typewriter the bottle of alcohol is placed prominently in the frame, this type of shot is repeated when Susan O.D.'s and the sedative is placed in the close foreground of the shot. The use of focus in Citizen Kane gives the viewer insight into what the characters are thinking or feeling. Often throughout the film when Kane is talking business he will go out of focus and only Leland will be in sharp focus. It is in these types of shots that we see that Leland is thinking about the man that he once knew which ultimately foreshadows the falling out they will have toward the end of the film. The last thing that I will mention that this film does very well is the use of transitions. For instance when Kane is looking at the picture of the Chronicle employees and it transitions from the picture to the actual people who are then employed by Kane. Also, when the newspapers run the article of Kane and Susan's affair it transitions from her building door with the 185 over it to the same shot on the cover of the newspaper. The use of a slow fade is also used throughout the film when ever a character is remembering. Needless to say, I think that Citizen Kane is a very
  • Expect lots of pigeons and touting locals once you get off the ferry. But once inside, all is peaceful and forgotten.
