My first Hong Sang-soo film. Hated it the first time I saw it, but loved it after that.. It took a second viewing to truly appreciate Hong's signature style and the film's overall looseness and quirks.
This is what Korean cinema is all about. A story about the struggles faced by pansori artists, it is a reflection on Korea's loss of tradition and culture. It's success at the box office makes this film a true piece of Korean cinema. SOPYONJE is highly rewarding, and I recommend you don't miss this Im Kwon-taek classic of our time.
The more I think about this film, the more I love it.
Subtle, yet highly-stylised. DRIVE subverts the genre of action/heist? films, yet it doesn't try hard to do so. The film is admirable and I can't wait to see what else Refn has in store for the future.
Gondry's dreams inspire me.
Ingenious. Baumbach by himself (without Anderson) is just as good.
What on Earth is everyone talking about - this film was awful. The little to no character development frustrated me.
I secretly want to see this.
I didn't think this was really all that special. Don't get me wrong though, the realist approach was spot on and Mo'nique and Gabby's performances were great - it just didn't work for me story-wise.
Wes Anderson at his best.
