A compelling depiction of how brave individuals from all walks of life mobilized a whole nation to bring a recalcitrant dictator and his henchmen to their knees.
here's an admirable dot-connecting quality to "1987," akin to HBO's "The Wire," as it wends from backroom scheming among powerful men to street riots starring an angry public ...
1987 speaks more to our current moment than anything Hollywood is producing.
Slick and accomplished, 1987 is also single-minded and forthright in its intentions, propelled by an exasperated nation which demanded more of its public officials.
The filmmakers turn these historical events into a satisfying, fast-paced, gripping and smart thriller, focusing on a myriad of characters all united by their activism and disgust for the men in charge.
South Korea's fraught transition from dictatorship to democracy in 1987 is shaped with fictional detail and sometimes excessive melodrama, but as a political thriller Jang Joon-hwan's film has a tense urgency as the resistance slowly turns the tide.
Heartbreaking and inspiring, dark and illuminating, 1987: WHEN THE DAY COMES shows us how the power and beauty of cinema can capture a moment in time, and its ability to frame and glorify the human spirit.
Honestly, I half expected to hear "dun, dun" at the end of every scene.
