    ★★★

    Director Kwak Jae-young was coming off three successful films when he directed this one - the incredibly popular My Sassy Girl, The Classic and Windstruck.

Both opened in 1977. I tried once getting into Studio 54; I didn't with Plato's! I like thousands of others failed - turned away by a doorman with a discerning eye for straight squares like me. I was a member of the Bridge and Tunnel…
