Memories of Murder

Memories of Murder ★★★★★

Just completely blown away by this. Absolutely amazing camera work. And it’s so subtly masterful you almost don’t even notice. These scenes were captured beautifully and it’s such an engaging story. The characters, all of them, are so real.

The ending is just beautiful and devastating at the same time. I know I love it and I’m not even sure why. I feel so satisfied but with so little answers. 

I love the way Bong Jong-ho makes you laugh at things that aren’t on their surface even funny. Lots of dark humor. Situational humor. He finds the quirkiness in life. Even in these dramatic and sometimes depressing avenues of human nature. And the miracle isn’t that he sees that. It’s that he sees it and is so adeptly able to help us see it. What a master.
