Got pretty mediocre reviews but I enjoyed it. First 20 minutes was a bit flat but it picked up.

I always passed on this because the trailers made it seem so mediocre. May as well give a watch now that it's on streaming.

Hmm...kinda dorky feeling at the start, but some good feels. Slow to get where its going, and from the way the trailer presented it, I was beginning to think I had been misled. It has some very passionate, moving scenes that had me welling up inside. But it was also very heavy-handed, and though I know nothing about the South Korean legal system (and considering this was set in the 70s and 80s), I find it hard to believe they'd allow an attorney to have such free license to say what this guy does in several courtroom scenes.

I wonder if it's just a matter of culture. I remember movies like this from the 70s that were also very passionate and blatant about the points they were trying to make emotionally, but this was made in, what, 2013/2014? Ultimately, disappointing to me.

A+++++

Easily the most gorgeous film I’ve seen. Amazing acting all around. Sets, costumes, everything is top notch. I wish more classics would be given this quality of treatment. Incredible!

I plan to give this another watch soon.

Dunno how I ended up with a list of quirky scifi movies in a .txt, but I started today with "Beyond the Black Rainbow"

That list is already deleted.

Next task is to finish all Bergman films.
