Nabbeun namja (Bad Guy) Reviews
Totally skippable. It doesn't even have the distinction of being significant chronologically for Kim - The Isle came first and is, by all accounts, better. It's good that he went on to make much more provocative, fleshed-out films than this. I guess it served as a stepping stone for him.
At its core it could be viewed as an incredibly unconventional love story with sado-massochistic overtones, but reducing it to that would be a disservice to the film. There is so much more going on, at the edges of the frame, such magic, such hope even ammongst the nihilism that the film is able to get away with a lot, especially during the last 30 minutes, as by this point it has long since established itself as a poem first and foremost.
Soon he realizes that he loves her?
A great looking film, but somewhat puzzling if considered in the rational world we live in, but this film follows its own logic entirely and makes it work.
Well worth a look.
Anyways...this is definately a strange movie but it's also pretty good. Basically it's about a girl that gets into a bind because of money and is basically forced into prostitution. Then she is spyed on by a guy through a double sided mirror. The guy is connected to her though in a way that I don't want to describe because it will give too much away. You just have to watch it.
It's pretty bad that a movie that is my least favorite foreign movie still gets 4 stars. These foreign films are excellent. I'm still adding to my viewing. ^_^
