Moebius ★★★

Kim Ki-duk creates wordless, gruesome scenarios in a way I’ve never seen and felt before. That is, I’ve never seen such violence and grotesque mutilation paired with intentional silence. His other films I have seen have some mute characters but Moebius goes all the way. It’s intriguing, of course, and comes from such a profound and simple place, of wanting to explore unspoken pain and trauma.

Nobody speaks, everybody gets choked.

Join us for the Summer of South Korean Cinema, hosted by my dear friend Benjamin. Here’s my working list.
