Man on the Edge ★★★

The Korean embassy is delightfully active promoting their culture by screening some movies every month this Spring. Having this movie represent Korean cinema is pretty perfect. It appears algorithmically created based on positive attitudes towards gangster movies, silly comedies, and cute crying children.

All these elements are just smashed together making it almost a parody of the famous Korean tonal shifts. The lack of subtlety in this construction is so egregious that it ends up pretty endearing, but also makes the sappy emotions at the end far less moving than intended. It's all good fun though.
