    ★★★½

    I have now seen RAW FORCE three times. This time I brought 7 unsuspecting souls along for the ride. Sure it’s kinda batshit insane, but it’s far more coherent and well-structured than people give it credit for. Punches way above its weight.

    ★★★★

    I love so much of this film (sure, those too) but damn do I wish it was about half an hour shorter.

    Swing Kids

    ★★★★★

    P.O.W. tap dance extravaganza SWING KIDS is an electrifying triumph. Kang Hyoung-cheol (SUNNY) has outdone himself with what may be the most rhythmic film ever made and you’ll be torn between crying & dancing in the aisles throughout most of it. An unadulterated delight.

    On the Beach at Night Alone

    ★★★★½

    Insightful, cruel and tactless in equal measure, On the Beach at Night Alone could be one of Hong's finest works, but it may also be the one that leads several viewers to swear off the filmmaker once and for all.
