Some good music could've really elevated this.
This been on my watchlist since around this time last year. Figured that if I've waited this long, I'll watch the full 4 hour cut. And oh boy. I don't know how a shorter cut could work, because even though it's long as shit, I couldn't leave out any scenes. I think I could fill up a hard drive of screenshots from the film, cause the whole thing is so beautiful.
Haru Kuroki such a SNACK
While we're all sitting here thinking "holy shit, Hong is peaking right in front of our eyes, at age 56, what a man, what an inspiration", he's probably like "this ain't even my final form, plebs".
A film of staggering beauty. It had this gorgeus darker edge to it which I really liked, due to the music, and the autumn/winter vibe, especially in Hamburg.
I just really wish to meet Kim Min-hee, so I can say hi and run away giggling.
