  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Nobody's Daughter Haewon": Daydreaming and the Human Condition Confined

    2014/03/29,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Hong Sang-soo's "Nobody's Daughter Haewon"... Hong's devotion to cinematic realism and his unburdened appreciation of the human condition is uncanny. The ontological valleys his films straddle appear delicately real, but come peppered with an understated magic that is uncomfortably grounded within the frame's abyssal regard. In "Nobody's Daughter Haewon", the auteurs 14th cinematic entry, Hong depicts the woolgathering of a young woman cycling around inert fantasies of love and companionship. It's an absorbing trip that comes inscribed with many of Hong's eternal signatures, a filmic fathoming of a loose soul who wanders and writes her own reality in sand and soft sadness,...More
  • [HanCinema's Image Gallery] "Nobody's Daughter Haewon"

    2014/03/29,
    A selection of shots from Hong Sang-soo's "Nobody's Daughter Haewon"... Hong Sang-soo's "Nobody's Daughter Haewon" is a meandering masterpiece that ebbs and flows in much the same course as Hong's previous pronouncements. Its slow examination of the human condition is intoxicating; a dreamy drape over the awkward realities of relationships that won't appeal to all and that only a minority will mind. The Korean auteur's 14th entry was also fittingly featured in Cahiers du Cinéma's top 10 films of 2013, and attracted some award-winning attention for actress Jeong Eun-chae who plays a dreamy inkslinger with a passion for passing out on reality. The film is singed with the director's cinematic signatures as it woolgathers its way through the magical conditions of being-in-a-world. Enjoy! [spoilers],...More
  • American critic creates award for Korean indie films

    2014/03/29, Source,
    Film critic Darcy Paquet is the creator of the Wildflower Film Awards Korea. (photo: Jeon Han) Independent directors and actors often produce films just for the sake of making films, because they love films. These movies are often ignored and go unnoticed by the general public. An American film critic who has been writing about Korean films for over ten years has now created a film award for Korean indie films to help them get recognized. Darcy Paquet, 42, recently established the Wildflower Film Awards Korea for Korean indie films and low-budget movies,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Poetry": Empathetic Cinema at its Finest

    2014/03/22,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Lee Chang-dong's "Poetry"... The American writer and poet Maya Angelou once said: "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you". In "Poetry", Lee Chang-dong's last film, this affliction is brought to bear on an aging soul who so desperately searches for meaning, peace, and poetry. Lee's short filmography is impressive, and reflects the wills of a storyteller who seeks the substance behind mere matters and modern mayhem. His compelling ruminations are romantic and robust; graphic poems that present hardships and hope in visual verses that demand both our attention and praise. This award-winning film drew inspiration from a real-world rape case in Korea, a Japanese television program on nature, and, of course, Lee's own storytelling genius and acute appreciation of the human condition,...More
