View all A Dirty Carnival reviews
Kim Byung-Doo is a charming low-level gangster creeping up on 30 years of age. His youth rapidly fading, Kim has seemingly been on the cusp of making something of himself for years, his natural charisma making him well respected among his peers while a manipulative boss and string of bad luck has kept him firmly locked into his lowly status. When a wealthy industrialist approaches Kim's boss to eliminate a bothersome criminal prosecutor, Kim sees his long-awaited chance to advance and takes it. But all advancement comes at a cost...

“What can I say, this is only the second Korean film I've ever watched and again I've been blown away by such great storytelling and directing. The first Korean film I saw just 3 weeks ago (see below - A Dirty Carnival) got me researching other Korean film and I heard A Bittersweet Life was comparable to A Dirty Carnival. While each plot can be deemed rather simple in storyline, we are brought into a world that few know exist and we go through an exciting journey throughout the harsh underworld of Korea.

I'll first start off by saying that while both A Bittersweet Life and A Dirty Carnival are "gangster flicks", they share few similarities. Although the premise is generally the same, I believe they are both contrasting masterpieces in their own right. In this film, the main charac” read more
