Shilje sanghwang (Real Fiction) (2000)
Movie InfoAn unstable artist (Ju Jin-mo) is sent over the edge during a walk in the park when a woman with a video camera (Kim Jin-ah) begins following him. Flying into a murderous rage, the artist begins running loose through the city, leaving dead bodies in his wake, until he winds up back in the park where he began. Director Kim Hi-duk shot this feature in "real time," during less than four hours in one afternoon, using an armada of 20 film and video cameras set up in different locations; significantly, the film ends with the film running out in the cameras set in the park. Kim Hi-duk then edited his footage down to a compact 86 minutes. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for Shilje sanghwang (Real Fiction)
Generally, I prefer art-films, or films going for a higher level of expression than simply laying out "real life" events. However, I still need to be engaged. This film is full of mock-ups of real characters I might care about if only I knew more. As it is, it's an endurance test.
None of the wonder found in Ki-duk's film The Isle is evident here. I'm having a difficult time being even generous enough to imagine an audience that would enjoy this film at any level. It's an interesting student film perhaps, and good for completists of Ki-duk's work. You know what? I don't even think this one is a renter......
