Bong Joon-ho Sydkorea, 2003

Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Memories of Murder

Bong's powerhouse directing and unique tone really come alive in this film, juxtaposing the absolute emptiness in the doomed search for a killer (and their own identity) with the humor of the quiet moments. In the process, there's a sense we're watching a truly epic journey, both all-consuming and timeless. Truly, a great film.
