February 20, 2005
Almost entirely garbage.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
February 18, 2005
Beautifully shot and lushly scored, this may be one of the least P.C. love stories ever filmed. But it's one of the most deeply felt.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
February 18, 2005
Becomes more and more confused, unpleasant and preposterous.

Kim Ki-duk does a bizarre riff on the twisted macho ethos of abusing women until they learn to love you.

Mostly distressing and occasionally compelling, as Sun-hwa, the young student, becomes ensnared in a prostitution ring.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 17, 2005
Though it goes on exactly a reel too long, Bad Guy reps the most emotionally satisfying pic to date by Korean iconoclast Kim Ki-duk.
February 15, 2005
Bad Guy, one of the seven films in Kim's fascinating back catalog, is another kind of cocktail -- simple, bitter, served straight and in an unwashed glass.
February 14, 2005
Desire, violence, revenge, and obsession play out against a map of sex and love.

Will leave audiences puzzled and then cold.
February 9, 2005
Realism isn't the focal point of Bad Guy-misogynistic male power fantasies masquerading as dark, dreamlike treatises on fate and love are.

October 7, 2003
Although the set-up strains the audience's disbelief, the mournful style -- complete with a downbeat soundtrack reminiscent of triphop crooners Portishead -- and meandering pace give this tale an unusual, near surreal, edge.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It's now 24 hours since I saw the film and I'm still trying to figure out what just happened, why it happened and whether or not its happening should be considered a good thing or not.
