    ★★

    Park has lost his way.

    Right from the start this movie seemed like it was trying to lose me.

    Notes:

    Six writers is never a good sign on a non-anthology movie, it smacks of "It's not working, more writing!"

    Abel Ferrara is not one of my favourite directors the man has pulled a few great movies out of nothing but his sloppy style is incredibly hit or miss.

    Starting right off with a Tell-Dont-Show voice-over that rather blandly feeds us the setup for stuff that doesn't matter and could have been done with the characters having a conversation.

    The dated…
