I cried watching The Woman Who Ran.

He's got another out now.

Apparently I just missed my chance to see it at MSPIFF. I regretfully hadn't paid attention this year, which is clearly as much the year of Hong Sangsoo as last year was the year of Ryusuke Hamaguchi.

Clarification: Missed my chance to see the newer one, In Front of Your Face.

four weeks pass...

The National Museum of Asian Art (formerly known as the Freer Gallery) has resumed in-person screenings with its annual Korean Film Festival (https://asia.si.edu/events-overview/films/). The programming will include In Front of Your Face and Introduction.

Tickets are free but you have to register online. Is anyone else going to any of these screenings?

I dunno...I'm beginning to think quantity has begun to outweigh quality.

Bunch of stuff on MUBI USA, some leaving soon.

don't know which are leaving, but think Right Now, Wrong Then and On the Beach At Night Alone are both great

Hills of Freedom leaving tomorrow, Woman on the Beach leaving later in the week.

FInished WotB. Still processing but was intrigued. Wonder which one I will watch next. Wonder if Morbius wrote anything long form about it.

I’ve got my eye on The Woman Who Ran.

Well, you know what I think.

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 24 June 2022 17:53 (one month ago) link

actually, see them all

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 24 June 2022 17:53 (one month ago) link

they are all interesting

you should watch The Day He Arrives (2011) and Right Now, Wrong Then (2015)

in retrospect On the Beach Alone at Night (2017) is still stuck in my mind, it was surreal in a way that was different for him

(On the Beach At Night Alone)

I think there is a film that he wrote and directed in which a woman says that she has had an abortion X times for the male protagonist. Why does the expression of affection (platonic or not) among Koreans seem so unnatural to me (horrible awful stereotype) and why is this comment made so casually in this film (as an indication of what)?
