    Castaway on the Moon


    "It's not for health reasons.
    After putting on 10.000 steps,
    I feel like I had a good, busy day.
    It's an all-too-healthy way of escapism."

    I Saw the Devil


    A piano sonata of revenge that, with each note, breaks a bone, peels back your skin, slits a tendon and punches and kicks your heart and gut and stops exactly a split second before it would knock you unconscious, only to build up again and leave you more devastated the next time around.

    I Saw The Devil is a gorgeously crafted piece of cinema directed by Kim Jee-woon. The tale of a special ops agent played by Lee Byung-hun on…
