Another fantastic film to add to Toro’s filmography! The atmosphere in this….sheeesshh.
I’m still processing this film, but what a ride this was. Night in Paradise is crime drama which is rife with nihilistic symbolism and an ambiance of melancholia yet it is still able to come across as beautiful/breath taking. It also has its fair share of violent scenes that are absolutely brutal, but they are not without motive. There are so many gorgeous shots at Jeju Island where a majority of this film takes place. Everything about this is a top notch cinematic experience. Thank you, Park Hoon-jung—I need to check out more of your work.
