Hotel by the River Instrueret af Hong Sang-soo
It’s like a series of charcoal sketches with marginalia; there are unexpected mini-flashbacks, and even a visualization of a poem. Hong’s free style isn’t showy; there’s a stillness holding the film together at all times.

“Hotel by the River” is — surprisingly, from the standpoint of a skeptic — one of Hong’s most unexpectedly poignant works, self-reflexive in a way that feels searching rather than rote.

It’s undoubtedly a quiet film, but only appears gentle because its characters, equal parts depraved and deprived, lack the honesty or emotional freedom to avert, even acknowledge, tragedy. Beneath the surface, it is no less scathing a portrait of male narcissism and fragility than any other.
