Memories of Murder opens in a ponderous mood as a small town detective named Park Doo-Man (played by Mr. Vengeance himself Kang-ho Song) discovers the body of a murdered girl stuffed into a stone partition of a ditch. Her hands are bound and her mouth gagged; she will soon be joined by many more.

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.

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

A very good movie

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

“Warning: Spoilers

MEMORIES OF MURDER is much more than just another serial killer story; this South Korean thriller is a movie of real depth, a genre-transcending tale that shines a light on social and political issues as well as presenting that country's police force in a typically unflattering light. The main story of the tale is also interesting, as is the complex back story, and although slow-paced this is one of those films that creeps up on you to become gripping by the end. Song Kang-ho leads a great cast, but the real star here is director Bong Joon Ho, who followed this up with the equally great THE HOST and SNOWPIERCER.” read more

"1.11. Teatteri Murhatutkinnassa kaikki menee vaihtelevissa määrin vituiksi. Kun läpimurron mahdollisuus on käsillä, menee kaikki katastrofaalisesti vituiksi. Bong Joon-ho tasapainoilee mestarin elkein satiirin, ääneen naurattavan tragikoomikan ja jäytävän intensiivisen kerronan kanssa, ja vielä lisäksi suvereenin tekniikan. Ankea väripaletti ja synkkä kuvasto imevät kaiken keveyden ilmasta, mutta komiikkaa löytyy silti todentuntuisesti jopa vahingonilosta. Tämä muun muassa mu"

2020: Others (340 movies items)

"Spiazzante noir nel quale, in una cittadina di provincia, un atroce serial killer sfugge alla giustizia anche perchè ricercato da un gruppo di poliziotti che inanellano errori e incapacità uno dopo l'altro. C'è l'investigatore che non è tagliato per il mestiere, quello che passa subito alla violenza, quello scientifico arrivato da Seul che sbanda come gli altri: ricerche sommarie, scene del crimine inquinate, torure di possibili sospetti si susseguono mentre l'assassino continua a operare in"

" Date: 1/13/2020 Viewed: DVD Re-Watch Note: I have been in the mood to revisit this movie for a while now because I haven't seen it in over 10 years. This movie is still fantastic and I feel like the movie is better after multiple viewings. I love how the movie is paced pretty well because the movie does not drag or overstay its welcome. The story is filled with great moments that will have you on the edge of your seat. Even though this movie may not be a horror movie, it does feel like one a"
