Memories of Murder

Memories of Murder ★★★★½

fantastic filmmaking from bong joon ho. the movie tackles a dark subject matter and still manages to create an atmosphere of ease when it wants to, and yet not letting the audience forget the horror of it all. my favorite thing about is how it presented the characters, their frustration, their pains. at first, they seem simple enough, maybe even distant, but the film patiently allows us to understand them. these memorable characters will stay with me for a while
