Memories of Murder

Memories of Murder ★★★★★

An investigation running circles around itself,
escalating to a crescendo it never reaches.
Detectives who are fighting to find the murderer
until they have blood on their own hands.

Memories of Murder is about hunting for a monster in a world filled with violence, where the line between good and evil disappears every time you're getting closer to an answer like clues washed away in the rain, and therefore it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. The feeling you're left with at the end, a feeling of never being able to know the truth is both infuriating and an absolute masterstroke. This may be my favorite detective-film of all time and, despite the mastery of Parasite undoubtedly Bong's greatest film so far.
