    2014/03/08,
    In the Spotlight this Week: Jo Jin-kyoo's "My Wife Is a Gangster"... Of all the genres Korea cycles through the gangster flick is arguably one of the oddest. Romantic comedies, melodramas, revenge thrillers, and disaster films I understand (at least from a socio-historical standpoint), but gangsters? There are no iconic tommy guns, dastardly drive-byes, decaying dead horses, or even much history behind its inclusion as far as I am aware. When I think of gangsters my mind manifests either impeccably dressed Italians hanging out in the back of family-owned pizzeria, or the faceless masses of a Yakuza-style entourage, their bodies riddled with tattoos and scars. Korea gangsters, however, seem to lean more towards the Japanese stereotype as swarms of suits, skin art, and blades seem to be the preferred tools of the trade. But what almost all gangster films have in common is this unwavering subscription to inter-gang authority, a strict hierarchy that holds one man above all others, a phallocentric pyramid that one has to mount in order to become more than a mere errand boy with a bad attitude.

    A selection of shots from Jo Jin-kyoo's "My Wife Is a Gangster"... The gangster genre is a rather strange oddity in modern Korean cinema, and the results are often hit or miss as silly and serious get muddled and mangled beyond comfort. In Jo Jin-kyoo's "My Wife Is a Gangster" we are given a unique take on the typical male mobster as Eun-jin (Sin Eun-kyeong), a brutally blunt matriarch with less estrogen than a Choi Min-sik, shows us how a fatale femme runs the criminal underworld. So take a gander and if you've seen this gangster flick be sure to let us know what you think -- Enjoy! [spoilers],...More
