  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Nameless Gangster"

    Film: "Nameless Gangster" Director: Yoon Jong-bin ("The Moonlight of Seoul" and "The Unforgiven") Stars: Choi Min-sik, Ha Jeong-woo, Jo Jin-woong, Ma Dong-seok and Kwak Do-won Review Score: 8/10 Also try: "A Dirty Carnival", "A Bittersweet Life" and "Rough Cut" The gangster genre has never been found wanting within Korean cinema. Tales of authoritative corruption, nepotism and violence have been a common reoccurrence within modern Korean cinema, and directors have been able to continually transform the archetypal Korean gangster around these constants.

But like my own father, I did not see these people as selfish fools, but sympathized with them. I wanted to portray these characters not as criminals who were on the wrong side of the law, but as people who tried their best to survive and thrive despite the conditions they were in. People innately follow the times they live in and those who ride it architect the next generation. The '80s in South Korea were an incredibly volatile decade in which a single person's decision could change the direction of an entire era. Following men who lived through that decade, I wanted to show that the eighties had more dramatic appeal than any other decade. I wanted to inquire whether it was the times that were changing the people, or if it was the people that were changing the times. Most of all, I hope that the audience can laugh and identify with these men who lived like kings in the face of loyalty, betrayal, and ambition".,...More
