    577 Project

    ★★★½

    Jung-Woo Ha and Hyo-jin Kong are two of South Korea's best actors. Two of my favorites, for sure.

    Hyo-jin Kong after walking 500km, when she is in a head shot, with the camera in front of her as she walks, her head barely moves--doesn't bounce up and down or sway side to side. Poise! (and good health).

    The Treacherous

    ★★★★

    Poops out in the last act. Too much plot getting in the way of the story. There aren't just a couple scenes in this film where if you described them to someone (such as 'A woman fellates a ceramic horse's dong') it would make the film an immediate non-starter. There are a couple dozen of them. Almost all of them work. The film would have failed if the concubine was played by any less of a talent than Lee Yoo-Young. Her movements from speaking to singing were brilliantly executed, and added to the film's strongest aspect: its physical rhythm. It's creepy entertainment!

    I applaud Koreeda for exploring "nice". It's got to be one of the greater challenges a filmmaker faces.

    Let Me Eat Your Pancreas

    ★★★★

    FYI The guy doesn't want to eat the girl's pancreas until after she's dead--if that helps?
