    This movie fucking sucks. It takes a potentially interesting premise, but then doesn't follow through on exploring it all all; it would rather pathetically insert some half-assed ideas someone came up with on the first day of pitches into a dull cop movie. It moves at a glacial pace, it's shot without any dynamic visual sense, it's just a real drag. Also, the animosity towards the different races doesn't apply to the real world like they hoped because it infers that certain races deserve their treatment due to choices they made in the past. Or maybe they just didn't think it through properly.

    ★★★½

    Well, damn. This used to be on TV all the time and I’d always see the finale where Marisa Tomei is on the witness stand, but today was the first time I just decided to sit down and watch it all the way through. This is just good fun all around. Everyone is having a good time, the story moves swiftly, the conflicts are weighty enough to generate some suspense, and the relationships feel real and true. It’s also really funny. A feel good movie.

    A nice breezy watch. It's a little...tame for my tastes, but it's a fun whodunit with a great sense of humor about the familiarity to previous movies that inspired it. Wish I could have made it out to see this one in theaters.

    ★★★★½

    I think sumptuous is the right word. It's clear from the very beginning that Park has mastered his style. What's not immediately clear is the folding layers of the story that wrap you up and pull you tight as the movie reaches its final act. In the end, a deeply erotic AND romantic movie about liberation. The leading actresses are incredible, putting on a front for each and every person they encounter, and fooling us in the process.

    I love it. It seems likely that it'll only grow in estimation in my eyes.
