"There's something in the vagina..."
Now, i havent seen alot of Bong movies, but this might just be my favourite. Parasite is a masterpiece, but i have to go with Memories of Murder over Parasite. Its my favourite murder mystery film, another good one is Zodiac, which you can compare it to.
The character developments is excellent, being one of the best in cinema. Bong explored all the frustration and feelings of the characters. When they thought they caught the murderer, but just to find out they found nothing again.
Its well shot. Great direction by Bong Joon Ho. The writing is smart, and the structure is good. The setting is intriguing, and the story invests you. Going into it i thought it was just gonna be serious. But it was actually funny, and it had perfect balance between being serious and comical. And I actually didnt know it was based on a real life event. I only found that out after i watched the movie. Its a incredible movie.
