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

20 Movies to Approach New (South) Korean Cinema (20 movies items)

"This was Joon-ho Bong's first worldwide success and it's also interesting 'cause it feels like an important premise to Fincher's "Zodiac", so it gives us an interesting comparing opportunity. I liked "Zodiac", but I found this to be way better...well I also think Bong's generally better then Fincher...so...

"22.6 Yleensä en näistä rikostrillereistä niin välitä, mutta Memories Of Murder on jollain tapaa niin omalaatuinen, että jaksaa mielenkiinto pysyä kokonaan yli kaksituntisen kestonsa ajan. Elokuvassa on pääosassa kaksi ei niin hyvää poliisia ja yksi ulkopuolinen tutkija, jolla homma tuntuu olevan paremmin hanskassa.

“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 special detective from Seoul try hard to search for the killer who ruthlessly rapes women, especially on rainy nights a factor that probably excites him. The film shows us the usual cat-and-mouse chase. Though it's not an experience that cliched thrillers gives, just running around here and there...

What mostly bothers me are the subtitles in any foreign movie. The way you have to look down every ” read more
