    Like his earlier film PIETA, Kim Ki-Duk continues his rage into the Oedipal void. Mommy castrates her son and eats the organ. That's just the beginning in this over the top outrage of a film which eventually becomes an endless series of castrations and mutilations. Is it possible to make debauchery boring? Sadly, it is and MOEBIUS proves the point. One masterful touch--the film has no dialogue which in writing seems like total pretension but in execution is brilliant and totally appropriate. Expand

    When one gets fed up with Hollywood blockbusters this could be the way to go - Moebius is everything you thought that cannot be filmed. But it's there and it speaks its little story about modern family and boyhood in a little different way.

    Mr. Kim does show an abiding concern here for the unsubtle realities of human libido and cruelty, but he’s alarmingly tone-deaf as he makes his points, and shows disregard for his female characters as he uses them up.

    A viewer familiar with the filmmaker’s latter-day schtick can’t help but wonder: How can an artist be so persistent in his use of symbols, and yet never manage to develop them beyond a rudimentary metaphorical framework?

    Following the self-importance of recent (and inexplicably prizewinning) films like Arirang and Pieta, however, Moebius feels like a giddy, playful return to form. It’s as uproarious as genital mutilation gets.
