No excerpt available.
Still, Won pulls off a rare trick: to be funny and frightening while continuing to ratch the tension up and up. Performances, too, are top notch.
A simply unpleasant experience.
For the most part A Bloody Aria has an adept way of muddying these themes for audiences expecting the usual gore-thirsty trip.
It may seem an odd thing to say about a film in which a baseball bat as an instrument of assault and rape is a recurring theme, but what makes A Bloody Aria a darkly delightful surprise is its restraint.
Half as amusing as that viral video of a sheep scaring its peeps while wearing a Halloween mask, A Bloody Aria is also less incisive.
Audience Reviews for Guta-yubalja-deul (A Bloody Aria)
A silly insult to Korean cinema.
This movie was...nonsense. Was I supposed to sympathize with the rejected sadist? Or his collection of incompetent, fairly useless sidekicks? I was bored by the half way point.
Really good dark comedy/thriller. It's mostly carried by the characters' dialogue, so if you're looking for 'action' then skip to the last 20-30 minutes or so of the movie cause you're going to be very bored with it. What I liked about the movie was how the characters were written so they would each have their own personality and quirks and it makes for some very funny scenes at times. It was also nicely shot as I enjoyed the camerawork. The last 15-20 minutes of the film are pretty disturbing as you see how the abuse just reaches a whole new level, so it made for some very interesting moments. I'd recommend it.
