From Seoul to Gaza (‘Films and Books’, continued)

Writing about Korean films yesterday, I remembered the brilliant and also captivating fairy tale that Kim Ki-duk‘s 3-Iron is. Kim Ki-duk is also the director of the award winning Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring, a beautiful film with stunning photography, although a tad too heavy on its buddhist message — I mean there is hardly anything left in this one if Buddhism is subtracted. But 3-Iron is highly recommended.

(It looks like Korean cinema rocks.)

I yesterday finished Joe Sacco’s Palestine. It is indeed a masterpiece and much more balanced than one might thing (or wish to think).

Off to dinner now.

  1. I suggest Kim Ki-Duk’s «Bad Guy». Βut only the first ten minutes of the movie. If you leave it there it is simply great. If you don’t, do it at your own risk 🙂
