JSA: Joint Security Area (Gongdong gyeongbi guyeok JSA) Reviews
As in other Park Chan Wook movies, the plot line is conveyed through flash backs and reveals itself in twists and turns.
Every interaction of both side soldiers is so intense and convincing that one holds his breath and waits for something to go wrong as it's all in flashback. Over the years many movies have taken inspiration from NSA. Two sequences are worth praise, the first one where three soldier meet at mine field and final one when all four are by chance in one snapshot taken by a tourist. Very strong and active screenplay and very good performances.
Like other Korean films I have seen, it values substance over Hollywood style. "Korean Shakespearean"
A must see!
