    Took me several attempts, but I'm glad I made it to the end. The last action sequence is nuts. You have to think: How did they film that? How are they doing this? And Ok-bin Kim. My gosh. There are parts of the film that are bad, and she suffers for it, but when she gets to cut loose, or calmly boil inside, she crushes it. She's not quite Charlize Theron, Atomic Blonde, but close.

    I understand casting Sung Joon…

    Car chases, gun fights, and tough guy drama acting. Not my thing.

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

    There is no vanity in this film. It's all bare naked emotion and gorgeous photography. The whole thing is more like a painting than a narrative film. The camera hardly moves. People don't say much and plot isn't really part of the equation. Despair and inconsolable suffering are clearly shown. Koreeda's passion is exploring light and color and composition, and in exploring the themes of loss, death, and the nature of the soul. Yes, that's a polite way of saying…
