    The Scarf

    ★★★★

    If you are looking for a noir that is a bit different and totally engaging, then get your retinas on The Scarf. It is a strange film, the performances are great and that dialogue!

    Blood 13

    ★★★★

    On the surface, it's just another caper/heist film with a couple of weird exceptions... it's set in an dystopian future ( the set designs are excellent) we know nothing about and there is a psychotic assassin involved who likes to toy with his prey. It looks great and there is a boat ton of tension throughout this film. Some might think it's too long but hey....it's a freaking Korean film! Just settle down and run with it. Fiend 'O' Meter is at a 8/10
