Best directors: Kim Ki-Duk
662 8.1 81. 3-Iron (2004)
This is pure poetry. So powerful and emotional.
112 7.5 7.32. Address Unknown (2001)
Maybe his most underrated movie. So sick, so sad, so pitiless and so amazing.
684 8.1 83. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring (2003)
An Asian director, raised Catholic, reflecting on Buddhism. Sophisticated and interesting but most of all this film is pure beauty.
141 6.6 6.84. Bad Guy (2001)
Another sick story, another great movie about love, intense and burning love.
234 7.2 7.15. Samaritan Girl (2004)
It's all about love again, but this time between two young girls and between a father and his daughter. Really touching and with a great ending.
152 7.3 7.16. The Bow (2005)
Not a geat screenplay but some sequences just leave me breathless. Again very silent protagonists.
33 6.8 6.97. Birdcage Inn (1998)
More accessible that Bad Guy and The Isle becuase slightly less disturbing. Or maybe not: the human behaviour is always primordial, istinctive and brutal.
201 7.2 78. The Isle (2000)
Again a romantic movie but even in a stranger ways than Bad Guy. It's shocking and loaded with symbolism. I dont love this movie but sure i'll never forget it.
24 5.6 6.49. Wild Animals (1997)
Set in the street of Paris, a little bit autobiographical. It's a drama about two immigrants.
224 7.3 7.210. Time (2006)
Kim Ki Duk again on love and relationship, but this time it's pretty boring.
43 6.2 6.711. Crocodile (1996)
His first work: you can already find al recurrent Kim's favourites themes. But the later works are so much better.
30 5.2 612. Real Fiction (2000)
Experimental movie shot entirely in real-time. Not a good idea, expecially if the movie is so inconclusive.
