Critic Reviews for Seoul Searching

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (4)

  • The adolescents at the camp in "Seoul Searching," which takes place during the summer of 1983, fall a little too easily into stereotypes.

    July 7, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite the overwrought stylization, the heart of "Seoul Searching" does ultimately emerge.

    June 24, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Seoul Searching" is unforgettable in how it boldly presents adolescence, specifically here from a minority's perspective, not just as a life passage, but a type of performance.

    June 17, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A buoyant, if undisciplined comedy about foreign-raised South Korean teenagers getting in touch with their ethnic roots.

    June 16, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Lee's most accessible film yet looks poised to capitalize on enduring 80s nostalgia and a refreshingly appealing premise that could see the film crossing over from niche bookings to much broader appeal.

    January 24, 2015 | Full Review…
  • A unique portrait of the Korean immigrant experience distinguishes writer-director Benson Lee's messy but endearing '80s-set comedy.
