    The Room

    ★★

    Osnovni koncept, ma koliko se vodio klasičnim geslom »pazi šta želiš, možda ti se i ostvari«, ipak deluje sveže, a solidan dizajn lokacija u tome svakako pomaže. Problem je, međutim, što se Volckman i ekipa bespotrebno poštapaju izrabljenim aparatima zapleta, poput ubistva u prošlosti, ubice u ludnici i dinamike sukoba u braku koju vode različita viđenja pojmova i postupaka.

    ★★★★★

    Dramaturgically speaking, every detail is in place and all of them get a pay-off that is usually brilliant thanks to the airtight script penned by the director and his “Okja” assistant director Han Jin-won. Countless tomes of theoretical analysis and anthropological studies of class system could be written just about the smell as the source of the plot mechanics, the use of elements, the topography of the locations used or the use of high culture alone. Remarks like Mr Park’s…
