  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Bedevilled": A Gorgeously Grotesque Revenge Rampage

    2014/02/15,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Jang Cheol-soo's "Bedevilled"... Jang Cheol-soo has an incredible cine-clock ticking within, a marvellous metronome that I like to imagine he has swinging and tocking above his desk as he writes and plans his work. This constant ticking then harmonises with whatever creative genius takes hold of him as puts pen to paper. A film like Jang's debut film "Bedevilled" is the result of such a ritual; a gorgeously grotesque genre film that hypnotises and horrifies with the percussive precision of a mad watchmaker come autistic composer. The film ebbs and flows like a daring dream; one that's sweet and surreal, but whose intent is deranged and two-faced, mixing together melodrama, horror, and revenge into a compelling cinematic concoction that bubbles and boils over in the most spectacle fashion imaginable,...More
  • [HanCinema's Image Gallery] "Bedevilled"

    2014/02/15,
    A selection of shots from Jang Cheol-soo's island horror: "Bedevilled" Jang Cheol-soo returned to the spotlight last year with the massively successful "Secretly and Greatly", a film that raced into the year's top ten with 6.9 million admissions. However before that star-studded event, Jang put forward the gorgeously grotesque "Bedevilled": a revenge horror every bit as detailed and compelling as last year's flick. The film contains some of the most intriguing images I've seen in modern Korean cinema, visuals and moments that still haunt and harass my memory banks. Enjoy! [Spoilers],...More
  • [HanCinema Feature] Yin-Yang Jang: "Secretly and Greatly" Vs. "Bedevilled"

    2014/01/10,
    Jang Cheol-soo's yin-yang recipe for monster success... Something strange happened while I was watching Jang Cheol-soo's "Secretly and Greatly"; a stark shift that threw me away from Ryoo-hwan's light-hearted comedy antics, and then dumped me in a rain-slapped realm of abandoned apartments, blood, and bullets. The film had switched genres on me, transformed itself from a lurid and laughable land into a dark and depressing action-orientated abyss. This re-creation of the world, from a goofy K-comedy to action noir, was not entirely a surprise, and I began to think back to Jang's debut film, the gorgeously grotesque "Bedevilled", and realised that a very similar narrative pattern exists there too. Both films seem to be noticeably split, fractured really, into two distinct halves: two genres, not smoothly mixed, but loosely overlapped and singed on either end,...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). In this special episode Darcy joins Pierce once again to discuss the incredible year that was 2013,...More
