[HanCinema's Film Review] "Alice: Boy from Wonderland" 2015/07/25,
Hye-joong (played by Jung So-min) suffers from debilitating nightmares. So debilitating, she has to take long breaks from graduate coursework, and that's just not the kind of thing that can easily be explained to an impatient professor. It's not like she can get a doctor's note either, because the doctors say Hye-joong is perfectly healthy. It's just, some people inexplicably go into comas for several days at a time, only waking up to briefly be terrorized by an inability to separate reality from delusion. What else is there to do except go find a shaman?,...More

[HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "3-Iron": Ghosts, Golf, and Silent Love. 2013/12/21, In the Spotlight this Week: "3-Iron" by Kim Ki-duk
Ever get that feeling that someone is watching you? That tingling sensation from one, but you're not quite sure which one, of your senses that makes your ears perk up and your eyes dart around suspiciously. If we were in a horror flick, as we often suspect, it would be at this precise moment-after a crashing crescendo, naturally-that a black cat would spring out from nowhere, an unexpected visitor would burst through a door you were about to open or, get ready to run now, something would violently reveal itself and crystallised your fears. Most of the time we 'snap' out of it, take a gulp of cool rationality and calm ourselves back to, what we believe to be, the sane reality that our personal bubbles and bodies have not, in fact, been violated. It was just our imagination, a glitch in the matrix, or someone running over our future graves. But those uncanny inklings often persist-as they often threaten to do, even if it's just for fleeting instant-and we are prompted to pinch ourselves and remember, and as Kim Ki-duk's "3-Iron" concludes, that "it's hard to tell that the world we live in is either a reality or a dream",...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "3-Iron" 2013/02/01,
Answers are overrated. "3-Iron", directed by Kim Ki-duk, is a film that defies any attempt at explanation. Oddly, everything that happens makes perfect sense. In literal terms, I could describe to you every individual scene fairly easily. But this information would be deceptive. This is because at every scene we're always left hanging with the question "why?"
The audience isn't alone in confusion. Multiple characters at multiple points demand explanations from stone-faced taciturn individuals, and they're almost always completely frustrated and rebuffed in their quest for an answer,...More
