Dalibor's rating of the film Memories of Murder

Sketchy characters featured within a sketchy story didn't start off promising. But as soon as it rediscovered classical crime-drama motifs and topics, unpretentiously pairing them with a unique sense of humor and commendable film photography, the whole thing gets an interesting neo-noir makeover. Somewhere between little red riding hood and Se7en, the film possesses a surprising authenticity.
