  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Red Tomb"

    Before and during the Korean War, the South Korean government made a point of murdering people, often in large numbers, on the suspicion of their being Communists. Disturbingly, the elderly interviewees in "Red Tomb" have taken this as such a matter-of-fact detail of life that they barely even flinch when director Gu Jahywan or anyone else asks them where the bodies are buried. This is the face of successful government-sponsored mass-murder- No Regret, no anger, this was just a thing that happened,...More

  • Mistaken identity

    I've been planning to write on this topic for a long, long time. Somehow other things got in a way and this was postponed. Finally, I had some time to spare and collect my (scarce) thoughts and write a post. My affair with Korean entertainment developed into serious relationship, this is why so many things amuse me now. Fangirls are one thing, but illusions that fangirls have, are infecting, oops, I mean, influencing the journalism in Korea. And this is not about 'we-all-know-which-website' articles. This is about the trend that has roots in fangirls' perception of their bubble world and how it affect the real world,...More
  • Wieland SPECK, head of the Berlin film festival's Panorama

    2011/12/07, Source,
    After 30 years at the Berlin International Film Festival, Wieland Speck will be celebrating his 20th year as head of the festival's Panorama section next year. While he was in Seoul on his annual film hunting trip around the region, Jean NOH met with him to talk about his thoughts on Korean cinema, the Berlinale audiences and how he programs for them. KCT: How important for you is this annual trip around Asia, after the American Film Market (AFM)? Speck: For me, the trips to Asia and South America are very important trips because there are so many amazing filmmakers and they are inspiring the Western filmmaking a lot. The European view on the world, especially the Western European view on the world, is a little bit like simmering in the same broth for many years now. And then, yes, we already have the most interesting film countries in the world [in Asia].So having our eyes out for where inspiration lurks, this is what we definitely need for our culture in general, but also for the filmmaking,...More

No Regret by Dai-feng

rist of all, I really want to say the movie was AWSOME!!! Its expresses the love, desire, and relationship between people who come from totally different background. On top of all that "homosexuality" is taboo so to have a movie that is gay theme is even more crave. Its just make the movie more desirable. The story is great, the actor is so cute, and (of course) the sex scene is sooo graphic. You really don't have to guess what is going on.
Love it. ***watch it like 5 time****

I'm a little bit confused... 2007-11-28

One night, about two months ago, I decided to watch this movie. I was fortunte enough to have found it easily. At any rate, I can honestly say that very few movies have made such an impression on me. I made it a point to watch other gay themed asian films (Happy Together, The King and the Clown, and Lan Yu) and quickly realized just how mature these gay asian films really are. I live in Canada (very liberal and open-minded people, and one of the exclusive countries where gay marriage is fully legal), and yet even here we made such a big deal about Brokeback Mountain (a crappy, cliched movie in my opinion). Are asians open about homosexuality? What is the deal there? I was told that it's something that is not really discussed - and yet, such movies come out of there... It seems a bit contradictory. Any insight, anyone?
