The Woman Who Ran

been turning this one around in my head a bit since yesterday and i'm only growing more positive on it. the triptych structure is so simple but, much like hong's style in general, the simplicity allows it to sort of wedge itself in your brain and reveal its deep emotional core over time. it doesn't have a clear conceit like a day he arrives or right now, wrong then, but the clashes with men that close out each of the film's major conversations feel as insightful about social norms, regret, and masculinity as anything else i've seen from hong.
