    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Yes.... ashamed that I'm just now seeing this. But glad I waited because the Arrow Video 2-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray is quite lovely.

    Watched this on the Korean Blu-ray. Seems like not many have seen it outside of Korea. Hope that changes because this is a strong debut with strong performances and engaging script.

    Premiered at Busan International Film Festival 2016.

    What an accomplishment. One of my faves of the year.

    Please see this projected on film. It's worth it.

    I really like this film. It's bold and beautiful. Color scheme and production design are top notch. Doesn't feel the need to answer every question.
    I hope this does well at the box office because Garland is trying something different here.

    Saw it on the big screen at the DGA in LA.
