    May look like an ironic, jet black comedy -- and it succeeds brilliantly on that level -- but in it's sad and wistful heart, it's a completely sincere call for saving the Earth.

    one more amazing Korean film, touching on all sorts of ideas, brilliantly organized, both visually, aurally and thematically. the director is focused on his love for genre, pathos, every movie he has ever seen, and an obsessive yen for Kubrick. While we will see amazing homages to 2001, we are taken back to Killer's Kiss, all sorts of wild sci fi films, the wizard of oz, and it's mixed together with a speed freak anti-hero whose obsession for the truth will pull the audience through a world that makes Saw look like a 50's Donna Reed sit com. I can't wait to see what jang joon-hawn has on the griddle for his second film. Full Review »
