A.f.r.i.k.aDec 5, 2018
‘A.f.r.i.k.a’ isn’t rocket science, but if you like a good laugh and are conversant in the basics of Korean pop-culture and society, it should prove an enjoyable treat, nonetheless.

Blades Of BloodFeb 24, 2015
A classy affair all round, ‘Blades of Blood’ is an invigorating and hugely enjoyable slice of chanbara styled storytelling from Korea.

The film carries on down a winding road of raised fists and black eyes but maintains a battered humanity as well.
