The audience is subjected to a series of emotional contortions, encouraged to experience them like a voyeur, and then scolded for doing so.

It's impossible to recommend this film to a general audience, but I would think that the bleery-eyed viewers like me who populate the fest at times like this would eat a film like this up.

After the experience of this down and dirty South Korean psychological thriller, park benches may never quite seem the same.

Uma história de amor absolutamente atípica que, depois de provocar uma estranheza inicial, acaba levando o espectador a mergulhar em sua lógica particular.

It's all distressing, superficial and caveman-like in its amour fou.

Kim Ki-duk nous offre qu'un simple exercice de style se concentrant uniquement sur sa prémisse de départ sans se soucier des éléments extérieurs au récit.

The plotting keeps getting away from Kim as the story progresses.

I was confused and discomfited by Bad Guy , but I loved it too.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Bad Guy's riddles are so hauntingly strange and its plot so artfully ambiguous that you just might find the film's grip harder to shake than Han-gi's unnerving silence.

Boxoffice Magazine

It's difficult to watch and even more difficult to understand, but the intriguing material is generally well-crafted.

His fascination with allegory and symbols is evident here, too, but his narrative strays too far from the dreamlike towards the just plain dumbfounding.

Bad Guy's greatest fault is that it is a listless exercise, that goes nowhere except further into the mire.

The film is filled with lovely images (Kim studied painting in France), and ultimately becomes, against all expectations, quite moving.

So vilely misogynistic does the film appear at first glance that it's no surprise it hasn't been previously released here...

Uncompromising, unpleasant and emotionally brutal, this twisted love story of emotional bondage is oddly compelling.

As a case study of one disturbed woman it might be interesting; presented as some sort of deathless love story, it's merely distasteful.

Certainly offbeat, but not on a level with director Kim's previous work about marginalized people.
