Idol ★★★

Idol is the sophomore directorial effort from South Korean filmmaker Lee Su-jin (Han Gong-ju), which uses a story of death and cover-up to tackle issues of immigration and class struggle. With a running time of 2h 24m and more than half a dozen central characters, I have to admit it can be difficult to put all the pieces of Idol‘s plot together, especially as the film makes more revelations about characters and events. I have no idea how the film reaches the point it ends up at, but at least Idol is a well made psychological thriller.
