  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Flame in the Valley

    Takes awhile to get going, but once it does it really takes off. A few surprising things about this, including its attitude toward female sexual desire and its flashback in color midway through. Directed with the panache one tends to associate only with the more recent Korean directors, gets me to thinking that there might be some other wonderful discoveries to be made in the old Korean films. We'll see!
