As always with Hong's films, Oki's Movie goes through stretches where it seems aimless and self-indulgent, followed by stretches where it's sharp, funny, and poetic.
A curious oddity worthy of multiple viewings and lengthy contemplation, but its tricky formalism makes it less overtly satisfying on an emotional level.
Mr. Hong's casually brilliant feat of storytelling, akin to an ingeniously wrought suite of literary short fiction.
You'll find yourself wanting to immediately go back to the beginning and reassess every conversation, every gesture, every long-held grudge.
If the characterizations are fleeting, the recessive mood is not: Hong's signature observational style is at once offhanded and astute, romantic and lightly chilled.
Happily, Oki's Movie not only sustains the pertinence of Hong's cinema but refracts it through an extra-cinematic device.
Oki's Movie is not without its charm and all three characters themselves being film directors explicitly aids its thematic concern with the struggle between the ways we represent ourselves and the ways we truly behave.
The director finds interesting ways to present a ménage à trois and expose the main characters as narcissists, flawed people and hypocrites.
Hong Sang-soo once again corroborates auteurist theory at the same time that he reveals the potential shortcomings of its practice.
Oki's Movie's original and clever premise, charming execution and memorable performances come together beautifully to create a picture that's both captivating and emotional.
Through a series of vignettes that keep moving backward in time as the narrative progresses, Hong coldly addresses the increasingly fragile love triangle between two film students and their professor.
