The Vanished (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Vanished
Only those who've never seen a mystery thriller before will be surprised by the film's third act twists, but first-time filmmaker Lee handles the hoary material gracefully, and with just enough creativity ... to raise the material.
The Vanished is a twisty South Korean psychological thriller, a clever amalgam of classical cinematic influences - especially Diabolique-filtered through a powerful narrative about the nature of perception and guilt.
Every character's reactions count in the plot...no paper scrap tossed or car bumper bumped is without implication. It pays to pay attention, though the film does make sure to return to the more important details as the detective pieces the puzzle together
This is a solid, well-calibrated thriller which noir fans will love.
A fairly straightforward remake of a Spanish thriller... which is surprising since its increasingly byzantine revenge plot feels uniquely South Korean, as does the fluid mix of tones and genres. It's also fairly engrossing and unpredictable
