Wow. In keeping with my practice of late night movie viewing, I just enjoyed the 130 minute long epic, rock-n-roll, western-themed THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE WEIRD by Korean director Jee-woon Kim. Great characters, unbelievable action, and epic (yes, I used that word again) cinematography. I’ll even go so far as to say it was a cinematic tour de force, a highly energized and stylized mishmash of the old with the new. Check out the kick ass trailer after the jump:
The Koreans seem to be on a run of late with challenging, exciting fare and Kim Ji-Woon’s latest film is no exception. With the traditional story trappings of a revenge tale, “I Saw The Devil” nonetheless explores the concepts of identity with Ji-Woon’s unique style and explosive imagery.
Here’s a recent interview with the visionary filmmaker and if you dare, check out the Red Band trailer for “I Saw The Devil.”
