can anybody recommend any good korean films?
Ive seen the vengeance trilogy, memories of murder, i saw the devil, jsa and quite a few more but has anybody got a good recommendation?
Oldboy. I can't look a hammer the same way again.
Edit: just remembered, it's part of the vengeance trilogy but a recommendation to other people nonetheless.

Question: Troy or The Last King of Scotland?
Troy gets rid of the most interesting aspect of the Iliad (the gods, of course), but provides decent contemporary commentary on the Iraq war and some cool fight scenes. Last King of Scotland features an inexplicably appraised performance that wouldn't feel out of place in a blaxpoitation film, and uses its true story aspect in a really flat way.
So neither is amazing, but Troy

are you looking to branch out into other genres or stick with the crime/thriller stuff?
if the former, go for the host (very entertaining monster film) and peppermint candy (brutally sad drama), i'm not a huge expert on the latter, though.
