  • [HanCinema's Classics] "Woman of Fire" (1971): Infestations of the Heart and Home

    2014/01/10,
    Riddled with rats, reds, and psychosexual perversions, Kim Ki-young's "Woman of Fire" (1971) is disturbing classic of note. If home is where the heart is, the castle from which a man rules, then untested kings beware; for no walls are higher enough and no moat too toxic to prevent Kim's black-blooded and blackmailing femme fatales from scurrying in and chewing on the phallic foundations.  "Woman of Fire" is the second motion picture in Kim Ki-young's 'housemaid trilogy', an adulterous series of misfortunate sexapades that started with Kim's masterly "The Housemaid - 1960", was further fuelled by "Woman of Fire", and rekindled once more with "Woman of Fire '82" (1982). These incendiary time capsules are all variants and remakes of the same disastrous domestic scenario, celluloided celebrations of fantastical femme fatales that enter Korea's strawman's mansions and gnaw at the hibernating hamartia that resides. In these Trojan tropes, corruptible morality is explored through psychosexual themes of fantasy and desire, threats to the hearth brought about by the welcoming of a dormant sexual reactor into the nuclear family,...More

    2014/01/07, Source,
    Based on true stories, "The Attorney", left, and "Way Back Home", center, are currently screening nationwide. [JoongAng Ilbo] At the start of this winter's big hit movie "The Attorney", there is a caption that reads: "This film is based on a true story, but please be informed that it is a work of fiction". "The Attorney" is loosely based on the infamous "Burim case", which took place in Busan in 1981, when the military government under Chun Doo-hwan rounded up more than 20 university students, teachers and workers who were members of a book club and falsely accused them of being Communists. The accused were detained and tortured in an effort to shore up support for the Chun regime, which had seized power just the year before,...More
  • [HanCinema's Afterwords] KOFIC Podcast Review - Special Episode

    2014/01/04,
    In this Episode: Korean Cinema in 2013…  KOFIC recently launched "Korean Cinema Today", a bimonthly podcast that's all about the wonderful world of Korean cinema. Hosted by Pierce Conran, the show features the latest Korean cinema news, features, discussions, and interviews with special guests from the industry. In this special episode, Pierce has Darcy Paquet in studio to talk about the past year's big features, their top 5 films of the year, industry trends, as well as mention some of the big period films coming our way in 2014. "Korean Cinema Today" is only four episodes in, and so while they are still finding their feet, the show is shaping up to be another fantastic new initiative by KOFIC. The show is hosted by Pierce Conran (editor of Modern Korean Cinema, Twitch Korean film correspondent, and writer for the Korean Film Council) and thus far he has already had interviews with Kwak Gyeong-taek ("Friend 2"), Lee Cheol-ha ("Hello Orchestra"), and has Darcy Paquet (one of Korea's leading and dedicated film critics) on the show to talk about 2003 (a landmark year for Korean cinema).
