by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Chun Woo-hee, In-seon Jeong, So-Young Kim, Yeong-ran Lee | Written and Directed by Lee Su-jin When watching movies we tend to expect them to explain things to us, almost in the assumption that we should be comfortable in knowing exactly where the film is going and what it wants from us as the audience.  Some films […]

‘Cobain: Montage of Heck’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

I doubt it; but for […]
