Hill of Freedom Directed by Hong Sang-soo
The modern viewer, Hong seems to wager, has become so adept at deciphering and re-ordering the chronologically scattered narratives of so much of arthouse (and even blockbuster) cinema that a filmmaker can literally show the events of an entire film in a totally randomised order, without overly impairing the audience’s comprehension of the film.
