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.

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

" 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"

" Another one I don't have much new to add, I enjoyed this even more than I did the last time I watched. I have been watching a lot of Korean TV and movies this past year and just getting used to the language and tone and setting makes all the rest easier to absorb as I get more and more used to the different culture, and it's been so great exploring what Korean cinema has to offer. This one is so solid, one of the best things is the perfect blend of humor and tragedy- lead actor Kang-ho Song and"
