With their fifth album "In Dream", British band Editors continue to defy categorisation, having left behind the energetic guitar rock of their early releases with a journey to disco's darker side. "It's experimental and pop at the same time," singer Tom Smith said of the album, which was made in just over six weeks in an artist's small, isolated house in western Scotland. Since their debut in 2002, the band have sought to forge a distinct identity, defined by powerful guitars, dark subject matter and Smith's deep voice that recalls Ian Curtis, singer of legendary 1980s Manchester band Joy Division.
Two of Asia's leading filmmakers believe moviegoers are set to benefit from the "globalisation" of cinema, which they say will boost the variety and quality of films the world is watching. Acclaimed Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul said he welcomed the fact there were now fewer "borders" in cinema. "The more filmmakers from around the world work together, the more ideas we will share and the better the content we produce will be," said Apichatpong.
