Movie Info

Arirang is about Kim Ki-duk playing 3 roles in 1. Through Arirang I climb over one hill in life. Through Arirang I understand human beings, thank the nature, and accept my life as it is now. We are now... in the terrestrial world lurking with desires, in the ghostly world lurking with sorrow in the imaginary world lurking with dreams, with no beginning nor end, slowly going crazy. What is affection that it still remains all around me decaying? It's still stuck to the crown of my head, testing my

A cri de coeur, constructed as a fly-on-the-wall doc.

It is the most extravagantly self-indulgent piece of pure loopiness imaginable - but gripping as well. A piece of experimentalism at odds with convention.

There are intelligent and provocative ideas within Kim Ki-duk's unbearably self-serving docudrama, but the auteur should stick to what he knows best.

Kim Ki-duk's self-made documentary about his three year, guilt induced solitude is incredibly self-absorbed, making it a suffocating and arduous watch.

It's a confessional portrait of the artist as a nutty middle-aged man and a rare insight into a controversial director who's as divisive as the 38th Parallel.

Perhaps Arirang works best as testimony to how far up the mountain Kim Ki-duk has yet to travel before regaining his former peaks - at least, though, he has finally resumed the ascent.

A self-indulgent personal-therapy home movie? Or is there something more?

Arirang is insufferable, and it's approaching torture to sit through it. Although we do wish Ki-Duk would climb out of his hole and get on with his life.
