Movie #7 Joint Security Area

(2000, S. Korea, d. Park Chan-wook)

The first week of my movie a day yearlong challenge has concluded and what a way to end it. One of my favorite filmmakers’ first works is an absolutely tension-filled and heartbreaking story about relationships both personally and politically on the DMZ. It starts off like A Few Good Men and then turns into something significantly more powerful. Kang-Ho Song delivers an incredible tour de force performance as he does in almost every single picture he’s in. Seriously, check this out. It’s so good.
