Before South Korea's acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho dazzled audiences with Parasite, he brought us the modern masterpeice MEMORIES OF MURDER. Part atmospheric thriller, part low-key comedy, part detective story, part dissection of South Korea itself, MEMORIES OF MURDER is set around the hunt for the country's first known serial killer.
MEMORIES OF MURDER tells the harrowing true story of the hunt for a sadistic serial rapist and murderer terrorizing a small province in 1980s South Korea. Marking the first of many successful collaborations between four-time Oscar winner Bong Joon Ho and leading man Song Kang Ho, the film follows the paths of three increasingly desperate detectives as they attempt to decipher the violent mind of a killer in a futile effort to solve the case. Now, seventeen years after its initial release, and a year after the real culprit was identified, this cult classic takes its place as a modern masterpiece.
★★★★ "Bong elevates every scene with his unbelievably assured filmmaking." - Roger Ebert
★★★★ "Memories of Murder is a great satire of official laxity and arrogance, and its final scene is very chilling." - Guardian
★★★★★"Most telling of all is that tone, the slow, deep nuancing of what once felt cartoonish, the antic slapstick that suddenly turns sombre. With Bong, you never see what's coming. And then you're face to face." - Financial Times
"How the hell does a film this tonally out there, with characters this lunkheaded and at times even cruel and hateful, manage to be so indescribably moving?" - Village Voice
