    All those guys are pricks..

  2. saltwater's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    More or less a typical Hong Sang-Soo movie -- it is interesting to see his distinct style already developed such a long time ago. Cinematography shines and is more focused than his haphazard later films, plus the grainy film stock adds to the winter scenes of Seoul alleys and bars.

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    I'm a big fan of his work. I didn't like the soundtrack, but that's a minor quibble. It actually did what it was supposed to do, which is to reinforce the repetitious nature of the work. I say that in a good way. Looking at something from different angles, messing about with chronology. Right from the start you know you'll have to piece it together in your mind. Watching it twice definitely helps.

  8. ikkini's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Hong Sang-Soo fait toujours le même film, mais il le fait si bien !

  9. robin's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Romantic love stripped bare by its participants and what's found underneath very much depends on the point of view.

  10. Arjond's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Nice synopsis on this one.

  11. Gaston's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    It is an interesting movie due to the details in the use of space by the characters. I am wondering if cinematic staging is culturally bound.

  12. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Never a movie sounded so familiar.

  13. lazycalm's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Two hours of nightmare (at least for me). This woman was treated like a junk by men around her and she just…accepted it! It was like watching someone got raped and I kept waiting for that ‘epiphany moment’ for her, but b*tch it never came!

  14. Tyler Michael's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    One of the most fascinating fractured portraits of what it means to be a woman. The frank, sometimes brutal presentation of (hetero-)sexuality never borders on the sadistic (that is, on the part of the camera...) and almost constructs the film as a warped satire of the entire genre of film romance. The construction of the film is its most powerful aspect, working to simultaneously elucidate and obscure reality.

  15. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    After watching this I now know two important things: a) I never want to have sex, and b) Being a girl sucks. The title suggests a Japanese exploitation movie, but this is anything but. Characteristic of Hong Sang-soo, Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors is misanthropic, deadpan, sometimes funny, but mostly depressing; think of it as a Seinfeld episode without the jokes filmed in a wintry black and white.

  16. William Low's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Brilliant editing! Each segments keep changing the viewer's perspective and perceptions,resulted in a richly layered and engaging film. Its like peeling an onion and in the end it caught our "tears".

  17. Doc Block's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    The truth is highly distorted and is quantitatively relative.

  18. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Hong Sangsoo plays with perception and ideas of truth in this drama about a young woman and her suitors played out from different angles and different points of view. Hong explores the story from varying perceptions, calling into question their validity as the characters themselves try to find love despite their own shortcomings. Brilliantly structured and rewarding.

  19. Gran-Hoff's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Possibilities are endless, but throughout all of them the same far-from-perfect human beings are the ones making the story unfold itself...things will never be ideal. As the film itself illustrates, any attempt to clean up the 'noise' cause by the characters in front of the camera would only leave us facing a inanimate-cold-nothingness...the same ones who f-things up are the ones who make it all possible.

  20. Mathieu Langlois's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Really sad that Lee Eun-ju comitted suicide...

  21. Chai Is the Warmest Beverage's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    This film feels as though it exists in an odd limbo between Hong's dark and plodding early works, and his more recent, structured comedies. But of course the figure of the amoral artist appears as one of the focal characters, seemingly an allusion to the director's own personal failings. This seems to be a binding element throughout many of his films. That and soju.

  22. Frank's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    It's not so much about who's side is accurate, but about two possibilities. (hence the reference in the title to Duchamp's glass) One represents chance meetings and is about fate, which is how Jae-hoon sees reality. While the other is about intention (hence the titles perhaps coincidence and perhaps intention) and is how Soo-Jung looks at reality.

  23. InsertOzuReferencehere's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    It's not about what a memory can tell us about events ... but what they tell us about the people who remember them. One of Hong Sang - Soos best by miles.

  24. Walberto's rating of the film Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors

    Just loved the way Hong Sang-soo plays with the narrative without making it boring, giving new light to a simple story.
