Re: Movies Seen in 2010

DVD view: Samaritan Girl (2004)

I debated for a while whether Ki-duk Kim is a visionary auteur or just gratuitously weird, but he's both, by turns. His characters tend to behave not remotely like real people, instead acting out Kim's constant symbolisms; but it's usually interesting. His work also tends to be a good choice in some ways for foreign markest as most of his movies have so little dialogue that the use of subtitles hardly matters; this one has more dialogue than most. The crux of this one is father/daughter relations...or something, I don't know. Not going to rate this one, I don't think.
