Critic Reviews for Telmisseomding (Tell Me Something)
A complicated and stylish Korean thriller that will make viewers' skin crawl.
For all its style and assurance, Tell Me Something is not ultimately original enough to sustain its many horrific images, however brief they may be.
Mainly demonstrates that Asian filmmakers are just as adept as Americans at producing genre exercises.
Stylish, sullen, and a little predictable, Tell Me Something is the match of any American film in its quasi-genre.
So bedeviled by plot holes and violations of common sense that by the time you get to the climax, you've ceased to buy the whole story line.
Though it comes from halfway across the world, the movie, directed by Chang Youn-hyun, shows a desultory mastery of Hollywood clichés.
Audience Reviews for Telmisseomding (Tell Me Something)
Grisly Korean serial killer thriller. It's a little bit overlong, has a few plot holes and the twist ending isn't quite as surprising as it tried to be. Still a solid effort, it was certainly twisted and gruesome enough for me. If you enjoy disturbing thrillers like The Silence of the Lambs and Se7en then give this a look.
This film heavily relies on shockability, blood and gore, without it the investigations would not have been as interesting and this film would not be popular, having said that, the blood and gore were at least something 'new' and is definitely not for the squeemish.
An all round good attempt at a serial killer thriller. It just can't stand up against the heavyweights in the category and results in a a bit of a mess. There's too much dialogue being spoken and not a lot of it relates to the actual murders. The film then becomes more and more complex and feels as though it is trying to confuse its audience in an attempt to seem like something more. While watching it becomes such a chore piecing it all together your brain starts to hurt. It has moments of style and moments of suspense but with 5 different writers the pacing and overall story is a jumble.
