You know a movie has to rub SHR the wrong way if she's going to give up on a Korean flick. But give up she did. I stuck it out and I'm glad I did.
Like Bong Joon-ho's other films that I've seen (Memories of Murder, The Host), this one looks great, feels completely unique, and adds bizarre little touches that add up to making a memorable film.
The film is about a not-so-bright twentysomething man and his doting, devoted mom. The son is accused of committing murder and she is convinced that he is innocent. So she takes it upon herself to investigate the truth. There are many twists, turns, and surprises along the way. SHR missed out.
