Good, the Bad, the Weird, The


South Korea 2008, 124 minutes
Dir. Ji-woon Kim
In Korean with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure, Comedy / Western

Topics: Period 1930s.


Aroview: The high-end stylist behind Korean box office hits A BITTERSWEET LIFE and A TALE OF TWO SISTERS, dir. Kim Ji-woon flavours this eastern spagetti western with spoonfuls of camp, ultra violence and spiffy visuals.

Plundering Sergio Leone and Indiana Jones in equal parts, the film’s schizophrenic approach to genre has been a feat accomplished best by Asian movie-makers of late, and Kim’s treasure-troving tale of bandits converging on a Manchurian desert is another ‘mix tape’ worthy of this roll call. Although a tad overlong, enjoyment levels are skillfully maintained by the director’s keen sense of pacing, adventurism, and necessary silliness.
