Kangwon-do ui him

Hong Sang-soo South Korea, 1998

nrh's rating of the film The Power of Kangwon Province

If the very young Hong still seems a little over-bearing in his character beats, social satire or visual motifs he more than makes up for it with an eccentric sense of rhythm and structural sense that clearly marks him as a master...with his switch to video Hong will become more fearless, and even more idiosyncratic, and this film is not as good as either TURNING GATE or DAY THE PIG, but is worthwhile nonetheless...
