South Korean cinema often blows my mind through its depiction of the human psyche’s complexity. Films like THE CHASER, MEMORIES OF MURDER, MOTHER, I SAW THE DEVIL, and BURNING are different, but all dig deep to explore what’s underneath the human facade, and it’s usually a darker, more sinister reality. The country’s filmmakers often pose questions or leave one contemplating something deeper. For instance, TUNNEL made me consider the value of a human life, in a more literal way than I would have expected. One doesn't just watch a film from South Korea, one experiences it, and I’m super excited to experience this one next!
