Hwang Dong-Hyuk South Korea, 2011

willythesalesman's rating of the film Silenced

I sympathize with the intent of the filmmakers since this was a real event. but the film tries to exaggerate the already quite atrocious rape scenes far too much and far too many times to a gratuitous level. it is as if the film is almost forcing these things down to the audience's throat to achieve its emotional climax. not really the film i had hoped to see. at this point the film is more gimmick than art.
