I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK (Saibogujiman kwenchana) Reviews
The asylum setting is tedious and I hate the cyborg stuff.
This story is generally about how the two schizophrenic patients comfort each other and fall in love. Crazy!
Chan-Wook Park is the director with his unique style in film language. His works are very recognizable and always with great fun (to some extent, as those of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Wes Anderson). I like Chan-Wook Park's works for their beautiful appearance-jumping cut, flexible camera, bright colors and interesting soundtrack- rather than the story itself. Olyboy, Stoker and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance are all about cruel revenge and are a little too bloody for me. Besides, for me. it's difficult to get why those stories develop and end in a certain crazy way, maybe because I'm just not as crazy as those characters in the stories.
But I really enjoy "I'm a Cyborg. But That's OK". Yes, it's still crazy. But who cares how crazy it is, since all the characters live in a mental hospital. We cannot understand their imagination world. Just enjoy! There is no much bloody in this film. Happiness and cruelty are very well balanced.
I can appreciate that Chan Wook Park is a good Director with his own visual flair. I wouldn't mind seeing some of his other work but I honestly can't say I enjoyed this one.
I guess movies about crazy people just isn't my thing.
