Two vastly different cops are tasked with trying to solve Korea’s first serial murder case ever in Bong Joon-ho’s 2003 film Memories of Murder. A visually captivating crime drama that festers in one’s mind, the film’s blend of mystery and dark comedy will keep you on the edge of your seats. In discussing the film, we touch themes including the deconstruction of law enforcing and media institutions, gender perceptions and why dropkicks are the new “hello.” We also take a few minutes to highlight our short film selections: Doyeon Noh’s Human Form and The Halsall Brothers’ If I Had a Heart.
- 3:13 – Human Form by by Doyeon Noh
- 9:20 – If I Had A Heart by The Halsall Brothers
- 17:46 – Memories of Murder by Bong Joon-ho
