Manotham Tiamtiebrat (in short & casual, 'Pop') despite a long time in his career, but he still regards himself as a young and new generation movie critic who d exposed and expanding a new frontier in writing film review contributions, that there re far more boundaries of cinema beyond main-stream outputs. Besides working restlessly on writing yet he d never seems to get tired, he s still a lecturer for training work-shop programs and film-school, he s also enthsiaste in looking for new talents as a jury member in compettitiveness in film festivals.
