  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Stray Dogs": A Cold, and Thrill-less, Misogynistic Mess

    In the spotlight this week: Ha Won-joon's "Stray Dogs"... Having recently returned to Kang Woo-seok's stunning adaptation "Moss", I was eager to catch "Stray Dogs" (2014) and see how this debutant tackled this popular thriller setting and to what effect. Watching Ryoo dodge and decrypt Cheon's almost watertight grip on his small rural village was, indeed, thrilling, because we never really felt comfortable that our hero would escape with his life or the answer he sought. "Stray Dogs", however, is no "Moss", and despite its sound premise and sneaky set-ups, the film flopped (attracting less than 1.2K admissions earlier this year) and failed to fully adrenalize much of its plot as dreary exposition, manic misogyny, and poor character convictions put this dejected dog down before we even suspected it was sick,...More
  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Bedevilled": A Gorgeously Grotesque Revenge Rampage

    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"

    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
