The year is 1986 and South Korea’s police force is ultimately ill equipped to deal with... read more

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. Indeed, right from the start, I recognized the unique style of Joon-ho Bong which was in this case to mix a very dark and realistic serial-killer thriller with some unexpected humor. He already did something similar with 'Gwoemul' in which he mixed a typic... read more

Korean Cinema is one of those areas which I have yet to completely explore. Thanks to the Brutal thrilling Korean classic Oldboy, came out in 2003, I got highly excited about exploring the Korean world continuing my journey with this incredible film: Memories of Murder.

Memories of Murder, based on a true story, is a crime thriller set in the late 1980's. Two rural cops and a speci... read more

"Original Title: 'Salinui chueok' Country: South Korea Directed by: Joon-ho Bong Plot: In a small Korean province in 1986, three detectives struggle with the case of multiple young women being found raped and murdered by an unknown culprit. Note: Right from the start, I recognized the unique style of Joon-ho Bong which was in this case to mix a very dark and realistic serial-killer thriller with some unexpected humor. Eventually, I really enjoyed the fact that there were just so many layers. "
