Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Sub-Zero Wind (2018) The film is confusing in parts, with some rather convoluted storytelling; not least in relation to Young-ha's mother and step-father. But its message is clear and profound, and this is what resonates.‐ Screen International

No Score Yet A Boy and Sungreen (2018) The film's leading characters are well-developed with tangible chemistry among the leads and supporting roles that infuse the narrative with affection, humour, and energy.‐ Screen International

No Score Yet Youngju (2018) The film and its themes leave a lasting impression, largely down to Kim Hyang-gi's gripping performance.‐ Screen International

No Score Yet Our Body (2018) Han's approach to the topic, in which she gives her leading character (played by the superb Moon Choi) more autonomy to make her own choices and shun social norms, makes Our Body stand out as one of the year's most notable Korean independent features.‐ Screen International

57% Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days (Singwa hamkke: Ingwa yeon) (2018) Ambitious in both scope and scale, and utilises a cluttered but enjoyable narrative to accommodate the film's numerous characters and plotlines.‐ Screen International

No Score Yet Illang: The Wolf Brigade (2018) A film which is both over-plotted and melodramatic.‐ Screen International

75% Believer (2018) Despite the congested narrative, there is much to keep audiences entertained including the compelling performances by the entire cast.‐ Screen International

No Score Yet The Scythian Lamb (Hitsuji no ki) (2017) Bonkers - but all the better for it.‐ Screen International

96% A Taxi Driver (2017) Strong production values help underline the brutality inflicted on the people of Gwangju, yet Eom Yu-na's script also infuses the film with touches of humour.‐ Screen International

58% The Battleship Island (2017) While there's no doubting its huge ambitions, The Battleship Island turns out to be a disappointing misfire.‐ Screen International

75% The Merciless (Bulhandang) (2017) An accomplished and well-structured South Korean noir thriller about the friendship between two prisoners which boasts an abundance of terrific cinematography and exquisite mise-en-scène to more than satisfy fans of the genre.‐ Screen International

90% Claire's Camera (La caméra de Claire) (2018) It ultimately feels dashed and somewhat shallow.‐ Screen International

92% On the Beach at Night Alone (Bamui haebyun-eoseo honja) (2017) The striking similarities between this film - about an actress who has an affair with a married film director - and the intense local speculation surrounding Hong's own private life distinguishes it from the renowned auteur's other work.‐ Screen International

96% Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde) (2016) While it doesn't sail into new territory, Long Way North is told in an enchanting manner with equal focus on the animation as well as strong character development.‐ Screen International

No Score Yet Cheol-won-gi-haeng (End of Winter) (2015) Kim Bo-ram's cinematography plays an instrumental part in differentiating the feature from the conventional melodrama as they exploit the picturesque snow-filled landscape to help give the film a more contemplative tone.‐ Screen International

99% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) Its sheer intensity and ambiguous narrative might put off some viewers, but this latest film could well be regarded as one of the best films to emerge from Korea in recent years.‐ Screen International

95% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) The whole cast delivers mesmerizing performances. Kim Min-hee is on the best form of her career following her role in Hong Sang-soo's Right Now, Wrong Then.‐ Korea Times

96% Train to Busan (Busanhaeng) (2016) An entertaining ride, as well as providing political commentary when it overtly references the Korean government's response to the MERS virus alongside commenting on the country's class system.‐ Screen International

79% A Hard Day (2015) Refreshing and ultimately a great deal of fun.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
94% Snowpiercer (2014) An enthralling ride that never runs out of momentum as it cleverly examines the issue of social class in a thoroughly engaging, yet complex manner.‐ Screen International
