    The Killer was better.

    I wonder what's the baby up to these days, must be cool to be the baby from Hard Boiled.

    The Truth Beneath

    2016 was a great year for Korean cinema. So great, that a cinematic tour de force like this -co-written by Park Chan-wook, with an excellent cast including the late Kim Joo-hyuk- somehow flew under the radar for most people. Not without its faults, not as great as some of the other films of the year, but great performances throughout with wonderful editing.

    On the Beach at Night Alone

    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 I could meet Kim Min-hee, so I can say hi and run away giggling.

    I was a bit uncomfortable at the beginning. It took a while to understand and accept what Lee Chang-dong is doing here. It's a ridiculously fine line he chose to balance on. But it really came together as it went on. All those moments when she gets up from the chair are captured with such elegance, it feels like the whole world stopped for a minute.
