The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden ★★★★½

everything you could possibly want from a movie (whether you like costumes, period pieces, drama, costumes, camera work, writing, a wonderful plot, suspense or breathtaking acting) is crammed into the handmaiden. i'm completely drained of emotions right now, having succumbed to the complete filmmaking a dozen of times during the (long but too short) running time. even when the movie takes an occasional dip story wise, there's so many other things going on that grabs my attention instead.
