Critic Reviews for Grass
The black-and-white "Grass" is a deceptively potent entry in the canon, a thimbleful of purest, concentrated Hong-brand soju.
Much less consistently enjoyable than many Hong films twice its length, Grass compensates for its dramatic slackness and deviant sobriety by honing in on the ideas that its director's work often skirts around.
The choice to shoot in unspectacular black and white and in uninterrupted long takes (par for Hong's course) brands it as mainly for the fan club, whose ranks seem to grow with every new addition.
With Grass, Hong has taken the familiar elements of his work and exploded them, fashioning a kind of lonely cinematic cubism.
Whatever state of existence Grass is taking place on, one thing is for certain: It's Hongian playfulness of surprisingly soulful intrigue.
