[HanCinema's Busan International Film Festival Movie Review] "One on One" 2014/10/10,
The seven Shadows who drive all of the action in "One by One" are a diverse lot, united only by their desire to avenge a brutal, senseless murder that's mostly been covered up because the entire incident is a massive embarassment to the government that instigated it. And even this isn't a particularly unified desire. As we see more and more of their home lives, it soon becomes clear that whatever the Shadows are lashing out against, it's mostly incidental to the moral outrage they feel about a young woman being brutally murdered for no apparent reason,...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Weight" 2013/09/22,
Jung (played by Jo Jae-hyeon) is a hunchback mortician with a very strange problem. It seems like everywhere he goes, weird sexual stuff happens. Sometimes people directly engage him with the sexual stuff. Other times they do it right in front of him, apparently oblivious or indifferent to the fact that he can see them. I like to imagine that every time this happens, Jung takes a look inside himself and wonders, what exactly went wrong with my life that I can't just be a normal mortician?
"The Weight" is a film primarily about shock value. In case you couldn't guess, yeah, there's necrophilia involved. It's actually not that big of a component, compared to all the other weird sexual stuff that's going on,...More
