  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Hide and Seek": A lost and lacklustre lemming.

    2014/05/10,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Huh Jung's "Hide and Seek"... 2013 was an epically successful year for Korean cinema. Box office admissions skyrocketed, top-tier directors like Bong Joon-ho, Park Chan-wook, and Kim Jee-woon made their 'English-language' debuts, a number of indie films and animations received praise, and there were a few notable newcomers that made their mark. Among the successful debutants was Huh Jung with his low-budget thriller "Hide and Seek"; an atmospheric entry that attracted over 5.6 million filmgoers during its five-week run in the top ten, and also scored its writer/director the Best New Director honour at the 33rd Korean Association of Film Critics Awards. Impressive accolades, to be sure, but did Jung's opening really find what it was looking for?,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Snowpiercer": Dreaming of a Wicked Wonderland

    2014/04/05,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer"... 2013 was a frantic and fascinating year for Korean cinema. In addition to the recording-breaking figures the domestic box office reported, it was a year that saw three of Korea's top directing talents venture into English-language films. First it was Kim Jee-woon that enticed Arnold Schwarzenegger to get back to bullets in "The Last Stand", Park Chan-wook took Wentworth Miller's sizzling debut script and summoned "Stoker", and then Bong Joon-ho adapted the French graphic novel "Le Transperceneige" and ran with it all the way to the bank. The results were three highly polished and enticing features that displayed the cinematic craftsmanship of three of Korea's most progressive and celebrated moviemakers. Within this talented trio, however, it was Bong Joon-ho's futuristic extravaganza "Snowpiercer" that gathered the most momentum, attracting more than 9.3 million viewers to its epically fantastical imagining of a not-so-distance dystopia,...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] "A Tale of Two Sisters": A Twisted Tale of Sibling Sickness

    2014/03/01,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Kim Jee-woon's "A Tale of Two Sisters"… Wrapped in bloody brilliance and a creepy mind-bending narrative, Kim Jee-woon's "A Tale of Two Sisters" is a potent psychological horror of note. The film, Kim's third feature, drew inspiration from the Joseon-era folktale of "Janghwa Hongryeon jeon", a dark domestic tale that has inspired no less than five previous Korean films along with the moderately successful 2009 American remake "The Uninvited". The film also claimed a number of awards during its time, most noticeably winning actress Im Soo-jeong the Best New Actress award at both the 2003 Blue Dragon Film Awards and at the Pusan International Film Festival, and remains a favourite among Korean cinephiles and horror buffs,...More

Auteur? 2006-09-05

I studied Kim Ji-Woon's work for my A level in film as I have always found his personal style exceptional. I was investigating into whether KIm Ji-Woon can be seen as an auteur, even though he hasn't done many films. I personally feel that he can be considered an auteur, or at least, a director on the way to becoming an auteur. The reason is because I feel he has a unique sense of visual style - he uses colours, patterns and lighting (part of mise-en-scene) to create different moods and atmospheres within certain locations and settings. I also think that his use of music is very unique too. I have the soundtracks to most of his films and they are all used in the same way and they are all equally beautiful.
Does anyone agree?
