  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Hide and Seek": A lost and lacklustre lemming.

    In the Spotlight this Week: Huh Jung's "Hide and Seek"... 2013 was an epically successful year for Korean cinema. Box office admissions skyrocketed, top-tier directors like Bong Joon-ho, Park Chan-wook, and Kim Jee-woon made their 'English-language' debuts, a number of indie films and animations received praise, and there were a few notable newcomers that made their mark.

Its dark and meandering mystery was menacing and cruel, its visual, at times, lurid and sickly. Enjoy! [spoilers],...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Hide And Seek"

    As this movie opens we're introduced to a poor, somewhat disheveled neighborhood. It would be a fairly unremarkable place except for the presence of a woman with nice shoes clattering home with a rather hostile disposition. She seems irrationally angry. Even when perfectly justified reasons pop up that justify her rage, this woman is going out of her way to get offended and outraged by everything nearby, and it's difficult to escape the feeling that while this all may make her feel better, it's not dealing with any of the actual dangers. "Hide and Seek" is at its best when examining with this seedy undercurrent of everyday life,...More
