[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Drama Special - Do You Know Tae-Kwon-Do?" 2014/08/31,
Errol Flynn was, all appearances to the contrary, actually quite incompetent at fighting. His appearance in film as a master swordsman was actually due to the efforts of the stuntmen he was always fighting against, who did know what they were doing and thus knew the best way to make Errol Flynn look competent. Most action movie heroes, from past to present, fall into the same basic pattern. But as I'm sure you're aware, we only know who Errol Flynn is. nobody knows about the other guys that made him look good at his job. It's thankless work,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Samaria" 2014/08/22,
Prostitution advocates often like to make a point of the fact that, theoretically at least, the act of selling one's body for sex is a victimless crime. Johns are, far from hideous monsters, for the most part normal men with no violent inclinations. "Samaria" takes this well-minded conceit and twists it into a powerful film of terrifying horror.

[HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "The Bow": Dead-Reckoning Romance 2014/04/19, In the Spotlight this Week: Kim Ki-duk's "The Bow"...
Whether it be the dumb pander in "Bad Guy" (2002), the silent sneak in "3-Iron" (2004), or the mute monks of "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring" (2003), Kim Ki-duk loves silencing his puppets for our amusement. By hushing his heroes Kim sharpens our eyes to the meditative magic of the moving image. Dense dialogue and consuming chatter play second fiddle to the slow and symbolic seduction of curious characters lost in space. This is Kim's world, a placid and ethereal place that orbits a volatile sun with unseen molten madness at its core. There are both deep-seated and distance threats lurking in Kim's creations, forces that exist just out of frame that may, at any time, strike and sully the event with unadulterated Armageddon and subconscious conspiracies,...More
