A Violent ProsecutorDec 1, 2017
‘A Violent Prosecutor’ might not be winning awards for originality, but it certainly serves as a good use of two hours.
I’m A Cyborg, But That’s OKMar 27, 2015
By no means a disaster but a frustratingly mixed bag from a usually consistent and exciting filmmaker.
New WorldJan 10, 2018
Slick, confident and complex, much like its main characters, ‘New World’ un-spools a gripping tale of loyalty and the quest for power.
OldboyMay 6, 2015
Definitely not to everyone’s taste, but ink black humour and Choi’s powerhouse performance prevent ‘Oldboy’ from becoming unendurable.
Operation ChromiteMay 31, 2017
‘Operation Chromite’ isn’t much different from any other recent big budget Korean war epic but on its own well produced terms and commitment to delivering spectacle, certainly entertains.
Sympathy For Lady VengeanceJun 7, 2015
Providing meat for the mind as well as fireworks for the senses ‘Sympathy for Lady Vengeance’ is one of the best films of 2006.
The ClassicMar 1, 2015
Kwak Jae-young has presented us with a film that is difficult to properly judge. It starts quietly, edges towards something quite special and finally nosedives into woeful melodrama.
The Quiz Show ScandalMay 16, 2015
‘The Quiz Show Scandal’ is a keenly-observed comic creation. As nutty as a Korean version of ‘It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad World’ should be while also succeeding in pulling off moments of mordant wit.
The Witch: Part 1. The SubversionJun 21, 2021
A blend of classy slow burn filmmaking and bloody violent action, the film may not be to everyone’s taste, but it certainly sets out to find its own rhythm and style.
Wonderful RadioJun 28, 2015
‘Wonderful Radio’ is less than the sum of its parts and, in a crowded genre, just doesn’t stand out. Pleasant, but instantly forgettable.
