Monday Double: Memories of M**der + Parasite
One of the world's most exciting directors Boon Joon-Ho dazzles us with two modern masterpieces.
MEMORIES OF M**der (MA) 132'
Before South Korea's acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho dazzled audiences with Parasite, he brought us the modern masterpeice MEMORIES OF M**der. Part atmospheric thriller, part low-key comedy, part detective story, part dissection of South Korea itself, MEMORIES OF M**der is set around the hunt for the country's first known serial killer.
MEMORIES OF M**der 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.
