  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Samaria"

    2014/08/22,
      Prostitution advocates often like to make a point of the fact that, theoretically at least, the act of selling one's body for sex is a victimless crime. Johns are, far from hideous monsters, for the most part normal men with no violent inclinations. "Samaria" takes this well-minded conceit and twists it into a powerful film of terrifying horror. Yes, that's right, any man, maybe a family man, or a co-worker, or an artist- all of them might think that paying to have sex with a minor is a fun casual jaunt, just so long as there's a positive tone about the proceedings,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Talk] "Bedevilled" @ 24fps

    2013/06/22,
    Jang Cheol-soo's second feature "Secretly and Greatly" is currently closing in on 6 million admissions at the box office, but before it goes any higher I wanted to zoom-in on my perhaps my favourite scene in modern Korean cinema. The above image is taken from "Bedevilled" (2010), Jang's debut film after having assisted Kim Ki-duk with "Samaria" (2004) as well as "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring" (2003). "Bedevilled" was one of earlier Korean films I watched, and it set the bar high in terms of its stunning cinematography and visual story telling. Jang's psychological horror made its premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and won a string of awards from Korean organisations (including four 'Best New Director' awards), but sadly only sold a little over 160,000 tickets during its run in theatres. The film was a critical success, and if you're talking about Korean revenge films, "Bedevilled" is one of the most hellishly satisfying thrills out there,...More

  • Kong Hyo-jin, Kim Min-hee, Han Ga-in... they are back

    2012/03/15, Source,
    Clockwise from the upper left; Kim Min-hee, Kong Hyo-jin, Kim So-yeon, Suzy, Kwak Ji-min and Han Ga-in. The ladies are back on screens. Actresses are making endless appearances in movies in the Korean movie industry currently swarming with male stories. The mark of these actresses in the movies "Helpless", "Love Fiction" and "Gabi" which are currently heating up the box office, are significant. "Helpless" is about a man who looks for his fiancé when she goes missing and discovers that everything about her was a lie. Kim Min-hee's performance in this movie was great enough to say that her potential exploded out,...More
