THE CHASER (choogyeogja) (2007 S. KOREA) D/W: NA HONG-JIN W: HONG WON-CHAN/SHINHO LEE P: CHOI MOON-SU
Based on a true story, this fantastic thriller is an almost unbelievable tale (actually, tragedy) guaranteed to provoke an emotional repsonse, even from jaded viewers. Kim Yoon-seok is brilliant in a complex, difficult anti-hero (in the true sense of the word) role as a selfish pimp who inadvertently does more to catch a serial killer (Ha Jeong-woo, also very good) than the police, tied-up in bureaucracy, do. Gripping from the get go, full of surprises and blackly comic enough that it doesn`t completely ruin your day. With Seo Yeong-hee, Jeong In-gi, Park Hyo-joo, Choi Jeong-woo and Min Kyeong-jin. See it. The Director and both leads followed with THE YELLOW SEA.
