Seungchul's rotisserie of pain is almost worth enduring just to get to the film's climax: the most knee-jerk tragedy in the world becomes, in Park's hands, one devastating bitter-victory lap.

By playing Seung-chul as extremely sullen, and by constantly calling attention to his disheveled appearance, Park also provokes viewers to blame the character for his own problems- and thus confront their similarity to the movie's hard-hearted citizens.

Eventually we learn that a haircut and a new suit don't make for a better man, which seems like a small lesson after what we've been through.
