  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Elegant Lies": The Life(s) Left Behind

    2014/09/20,
    In the spotlight this week: Lee Han's "Elegant Lies"... Suicide, particularly that of Korea's youth, is a troubling thread woven deep into the South's cinema; a zealous zeitgeist of modern Korean cinema that reflects a troubling truth. This sensitive (and statistically significant) subject matter has been present in a remarkable number of modern films, and earlier this year director Lee Han treated us to perhaps the most cathartic and cinematic daydream of suicide and bullying this side of the Korean wave,...More
  • Joseon Dynasty through film

    2014/06/08, Source,
    The Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) ruled over Korea for more than 500 years. The lives and times of the 27 monarchs are some of the most widely used material in Korean film. In 2014 alone, a couple of films set with the royal dynasty as background will be released. Earlier this year, theaters saw the release of "The Fatal Encounter", a film which deals with the times of King Jeongjo (r. 1776-1800). Two more films are set to be released later this year. They are "Sado", which revolves around King Yeongjo (r. 1724-1776), grandfather to Jeongjo, and "KUNDO : Age of the Rampant", which focuses on King Cheoljong (r. 1849-1863),...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Sword With No Name" + Giveaway

    2014/04/21,
    Moo-myeong (played by Jo Seung-woo) is a vagabond who's quite good with his rather awkwardly proportioned fish head cutting sword. His excellent fighting skills make Moo-myeong a valuable hire in the assassin's trade, but it's an offhand job with Myeong-seong (played by Soo-ae) that ends up permanently changing his life. Moo-myeong suddenly decides that he's good enough for bigger or better things. In reality, of course, he just wants to get closer to Myeong-seong, who mostly reciprocates his affections though she's just married the king. "The Sword with No Name" doesn't really get into who these characters are, except as opposite ends of a doomed love affair set against the backdrop of late nineteenth century Korea,...More
  • 'The Flu' spreads horror throughout Seoul suburb

    2013/08/08, Source,
    In-hae (Soo-ae) holds her daughter, Mi-reu (Park Min-ha) as they enter a segregated camp after the outbreak of a deadly disease. Freezing planets, earthquakes, tsunamis, alien attacks and wanton destruction are among the themes of countless apocalyptic movies - so much so that few scenarios seem shocking or original anymore. On the other hand, when a familiar thing that's dismissed as "no big deal" turns out to be deadly, it can generate unexpected horror,...More
