Ok Hojuman a few more, just looking at my Box Office file on the pc:
Sympathy for Mr Vengence
Sympathy for Lady Vengence
Memoir of a Murder
Confession of Murder
Oh yeah and Burning.
I think South Korea has been consistently making great cinema for the last 20 years.
Quirky, touching, thoughtful, brutal and batshit crazy all in 2hrs of pure escapism, that's what Korean cinema is for me.
Not everyone's cup of maekolli but once sucked in hard to turn away. They actually have a very high requirement to produce local content. Think it's about 60%.
Castaway on the Moon not one that gets mentioned much but a great allegory on contemporary life there.
