  3. smeef's rating of the film On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

    searching for meaning in such an absurd world

  4. T. J. Mesen's rating of the film On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

    "Even though it is difficult to be a human being, let us not turn into monsters.” Ever the master of people, Hong Sang-soo uses repetition (of dialogue, places, situations) to highlight the absurdness of relationships and the thin ever changing distinctions between behaving like a human or a monster. Suggesting ours is a monotonous and perpetual existence of mundane events, naturally involving mainly food and sex.

  5. apollonouta's rating of the film On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

    "nature always seems indifferent to us, but the sight of you sleeping, and the fresh vigor of the morning, overwhelms me with the wholeness of the world"

  6. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

    God i love Hong's dry humour

  7. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

    El filme partido en dos historias. La primera sobre el triángulo amoroso, el hombre profesionalmente frustrado que se resiste al amor, la mujer como medio de conflicto entre dos hombres. La segunda sobre el mismo frustrado esta vez acudiendo al amor, uno que se le niega, es la relación extramarital, él persevera, ella acepta pero finalmente rechaza. El cierre es depresivo. Es el destino pasando la factura.

  12. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

    Hong Sangsoo directs this poetic tale of a struggling actor whose romantic travails with two different women begin to reveal unmistakable patterns in his life. Hong is exceedingly adept at illustrating life's reflexivity, but here his craft reaches its greatest heights. His most emotionally astute and haunting work.

  13. Eloi MV's rating of the film On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

    I wanna move to Korea, add a couple of K's, Y's and G's to my name and be half as cool as the guys in Hong Sang-Soo movies. This is pure marvel!
