An excellent Korean serial killer thriller.,
This review is from: Memories Of Murder [DVD] (DVD)
Based on the true story of a small South Korean village in which someone begins to murder young women, the plot of 'Memories Of Murder' revolves around pair of detectives and a special agent from Seoul assigned to find the murderer. Faced with crime scenes are routinely disturbed by the locals and a forensic team which are always a no show, the special agent is shocked to find that brutal local police are less interested in solving the case and finding the killer and more interested in finding a scapegoat, someone to blame in order to pacify a restless local population.
With memorable dark visuals, a haunting score, and a great story, this is a film which succeeds brilliantly as a deeply haunting and disturbing crime thriller. If you like foreign cinema and enjoyed films like 'Insomina' and 'Seven' then 'Memories Of Murder' is essential viewing.
