  • [HanCinema's Film Story] The Video Diary of a Madman: Kim-Ki-duk's Arirang

    2012/10/06,
    Kim Ki-duk is sitting in a tent, in a cabin, crying. He is watching one of his young protagonist struggle to drag a sizeable stone up to the highest peaks that surround his isolated island monastery. Over treacherous frozen ice and up steep embankments of shrubs and loose rocks the monk climbs. This is a scene from Kim Ki-duk's 2003 film "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring"; a story that, like so many others of Kim's films, was a deeply introspective tale that captured Kim's imagination and spirit. In "ARIRANG - Movie" Kim Ki-duk turns his Canon Mark II on himself and confesses his "life as a director and as a human being". Kim is huddled in a grey blanket against the white interior of his tent. In this moment there is little visually that separates this awarding winning filmmaker and the cold and hard struggle of the young monk powering through the frigid mountainside. Kim seemed on the verge of tears throughout this 'scene' and when the monk eventually drops his prized statue on his ascend, the personal pain Kim seemed to feel as a result of this was palpable. There was nowhere to hide within his small rural dwelling, and throughout the film Kim shifts between disturbing emotion states and their accompanying revelations as he attempts to document his own journey of self-psychology and repair,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] September and the Aftermath of the Summer Hits

    2012/10/06,
    HanCinema's Korean Box Office Review (2012.09) It took ten long weeks at the weekend box office to see off Choi Dong-hoon's "The Thieves", a monumental run that earned the film a recording-breaking 13 million admissions during that time. August was indeed the month its sales caught fire, and the month of September was just a glory lap as it gracefully bows out of the limelight and into the history books. In addition to the re-writing of the history books, September showed a wavering level of enthusiasm for some of this month's foreign inclusions. Although, "The Bourne Legacy" was able to enter the second weekend on top, snatching 29.3% of the ticket sales in the process. This was the first time a foreign film had held the weekend number one since "The Dark Knight Rises" some seven weeks earlier. In fact, the shelf life for foreign films was on average 2~3 weeks in the top ten,...More
