A tremendous framework of presence and perspicuity from the great master of South Korean cinema. There's no reason to miss it.

Shot in muted black and white, South Korean director Hong Sang-soo's Hotel by the River lets two stories unfold gently through idle conversations against a winter setting.

Shot in wintry black-and-white, Hotel by the River folds Hong's usual concerns into a structure that's more complex than usual.
February 14, 2019
