Best film of the year

This. 

I did a thread about it probably titled Parasite [2019] earlier this year if you want to look for it.

So many great films out of s. Korea.  Check out:

memories of a murder

Spring, summer, fall, winter.....and spring

Three Iron

Castaway to the moon

Oldboy

Just a few of my favorites.

 

This list needs....I Saw The Devil

I guess I should post in the Unpopular Opinions thread because I hated it.

Amazingly evil film. South Koreans are some twisted mofos. My kind of people.

My sub titles stopped at the reading of Miranda rights. There was about 5 minutes of Korean commentary after that.

What was said?

Poiupoiu - My sub titles stopped at the reading of Miranda rights. There was about 5 minutes of Korean commentary after that.

What was said?

from my sub file.

01:57:02,705 --> 01:57:06,525

You have the right to remain silent.

1567
01:57:06,626 --> 01:57:09,361
Anything you say can and
will be used against you...

1568
01:57:09,462 --> 01:57:11,846
He keeps laughing, look!

1569
01:57:14,884 --> 01:57:20,981
<i>Even when I heard how much
Ki-jung bled that day...</i>

1570
01:57:23,142 --> 01:57:30,357
<i>Even when I heard the words forgery,
trespassing, foul play, self-defense</i>

1571
01:57:30,608 --> 01:57:34,995
<i>and we were lucky to
get away with a probation...</i>

1572
01:57:38,032 --> 01:57:41,059
<i>Even when I finally
got to see Ki-jung's face...</i>

1573
01:57:41,160 --> 01:57:44,170
Kim Ki-jung. RIP

1574
01:57:45,707 --> 01:57:48,008
<i>I kept laughing.</i>

1575
01:57:57,677 --> 01:58:03,165
<i>Still, when I went back and
watched the news reports,</i>

1576
01:58:03,266 --> 01:58:04,458
<i>I didn't laugh.</i>

1577
01:58:04,559 --> 01:58:08,629
This sudden rampage in the
back yard of an upper-class home

1578
01:58:08,730 --> 01:58:10,339
is a highly unusual case.

1579
01:58:10,440 --> 01:58:14,843
Since the homeless man who sparked
the rampage died at the scene,

1580
01:58:14,944 --> 01:58:20,307
police are struggling to even
establish a clear motive.

1581
01:58:20,408 --> 01:58:24,895
The driver Kim and the slain Mr. Park
are said to have been on good terms.

1582
01:58:24,996 --> 01:58:30,508
For now the police investigation is
focused on locating the driver Kim.

1583
01:58:31,043 --> 01:58:34,780
Kim, after exiting this door
and descending the stairs,

1584
01:58:34,881 --> 01:58:38,391
disappeared into the
neighboring alleys.

1585
01:58:38,926 --> 01:58:44,064
Police searched the CCTVs
of nearby homes to no avail,

1586
01:58:44,599 --> 01:58:47,734
and they have yet
to find any witnesses.

1587
01:58:48,269 --> 01:58:50,337
Given the situation,

1588
01:58:50,438 --> 01:58:55,700
it's not an exaggeration to say
that Kim vanished into thin air.

1589
01:58:56,819 --> 01:59:03,784
<i>Actually Mom and I had
no idea where Dad was.</i>

1590
01:59:06,120 --> 01:59:11,800
<i>But those detectives still
wore themselves out tailing us.</i>

1591
01:59:15,838 --> 01:59:21,810
<i>Eventually the news went quiet,
and after the tails stopped,</i>

1592
01:59:22,345 --> 01:59:25,772
<i>I started going up that mountain.</i>

1593
01:59:27,809 --> 01:59:32,529
<i>From up there, you get
a great view of the house.</i>

1594
01:59:35,274 --> 01:59:42,405
<i>That day, despite the cold.
I felt like staying longer.</i>

1595
01:59:55,753 --> 01:59:59,264
Dash-dash-dot-dot

1596
02:00:24,323 --> 02:00:25,707
Son!

1597
02:00:27,743 --> 02:00:29,085
Son!

1598
02:00:31,122 --> 02:00:34,966
<i>Perhaps you, if no one else.
will be able to read this letter.</i>

1599
02:00:38,504 --> 02:00:44,809
<i>You were a Boy Scout,
so I'm writing this just in case.</i>

1600
02:00:47,847 --> 02:00:50,815
<i>Have your injuries healed?</i>

1601
02:00:51,851 --> 02:00:56,154
<i>I'm sure your mom
is plenty healthy.</i>

1602
02:01:00,192 --> 02:01:02,994
<i>I'm doing fine in here.</i>

1603
02:01:04,030 --> 02:01:06,789
<i>Though thinking
of Ki-jung makes me cry.</i>

1604
02:01:09,827 --> 02:01:14,672
<i>Even now, what happened
that day doesn't seem real.</i>

1605
02:01:15,917 --> 02:01:17,634
<i>It feels like a dream,</i>

1606
02:01:19,170 --> 02:01:21,137
<i>and yet it doesn't.</i>

1607
02:01:22,173 --> 02:01:27,143
<i>That day as I went out the gate,
I suddenly knew.</i>

1608
02:01:28,179 --> 02:01:29,938
<i>Where I needed to go...</i>

1609
02:02:09,345 --> 02:02:12,330
<i>A house where such
grisly crime took place</i>

1610
02:02:12,431 --> 02:02:15,692
<i>would surely not
be easy to sell.</i>

1611
02:02:18,813 --> 02:02:21,214
I'm sorry, Mr. Park.

1612
02:02:21,315 --> 02:02:27,870
<i>I struggled to hold out
like that in an empty house.</i>

1613
02:02:30,408 --> 02:02:33,310
<i>Still, thanks to
the house being empty.</i>

1614
02:02:33,411 --> 02:02:38,273
<i>what was her name?
Moon-gwang?</i>

1615
02:02:38,374 --> 02:02:42,677
<i>I was able to give her
a proper send off.</i>

1616
02:02:43,796 --> 02:02:50,560
<i>I hear tree-side burials are trendy.
so hell, I did my best.</i>

1617
02:02:54,098 --> 02:02:57,734
<i>But those real estate sharks
sure are clever.</i>

1618
02:03:02,273 --> 02:03:06,509
<i>They hoodwinked some people
who had just arrived in Korea</i>

1619
02:03:06,610 --> 02:03:08,953
<i>and managed to sell the house.</i>

1620
02:03:10,072 --> 02:03:13,350
<i>With the parents working,
and the kids attending school,</i>

1621
02:03:13,451 --> 02:03:16,044
<i>the family is usually out.</i>

1622
02:03:16,162 --> 02:03:21,591
<i>But the goddamned housekeeper
stays there 24 hours a day.</i>

1623
02:03:21,751 --> 02:03:26,679
<i>Each time I go upstairs,
I take my life in my hands.</i>

1624
02:03:29,216 --> 02:03:33,561
<i>It turns out Germans eat more
than just sausage and beer.</i>

1625
02:03:34,096 --> 02:03:36,147
<i>What a relief.</i>

1626
02:03:38,726 --> 02:03:43,112
<i>Passing the time down here,
everything starts to go hazy.</i>

1627
02:03:47,651 --> 02:03:51,829
<i>Today at least
I was able to write you a letter.</i>

1628
02:03:53,365 --> 02:03:57,268
<i>If I send out the letter
this way every night,</i>

1629
02:03:57,369 --> 02:04:01,839
<i>maybe someday you'll see it.</i>

1630
02:04:07,880 --> 02:04:09,931
<i>So long.</i>

1631
02:04:23,479 --> 02:04:24,546
You're home, Ki-woo?

1632
02:04:24,647 --> 02:04:25,747
Yeah.

1633
02:04:40,162 --> 02:04:45,174
<i>Dad, today I made a plan.</i>

1634
02:04:46,710 --> 02:04:48,636
<i>A fundamental plan.</i>

1635
02:04:51,674 --> 02:04:53,349
<i>I'm going to earn money.</i>

1636
02:04:53,926 --> 02:04:55,726
<i>A lot of it.</i>

1637
02:04:59,265 --> 02:05:03,776
<i>University, a career, marriage.
those are all fine,</i>

1638
02:05:03,936 --> 02:05:05,962
<i>but first I'll earn money.</i>

1639
02:05:06,063 --> 02:05:11,409
You'll see once you go in,
but it's very spacious.

1640
02:05:11,944 --> 02:05:16,681
Actually, we don't show
this house to just anyone.

1641
02:05:16,782 --> 02:05:21,294
<i>When I have money,
I'll buy that house.</i>

1642
02:05:22,329 --> 02:05:26,591
<i>On the day we move in,
Mom and I will be in the yard.</i>

1643
02:05:27,126 --> 02:05:29,552
<i>Because the sunshine
is so nice there.</i>

1644
02:05:30,713 --> 02:05:32,763
<i>All you'll need to do</i>

1645
02:05:32,923 --> 02:05:35,808
<i>is walk up the stairs.</i>

1646
02:06:58,425 --> 02:07:02,562
<i>Take care until then.</i>

1647
02:07:07,226 --> 02:07:09,360
<i>So long.</i>

I saw the devil, a company man and a man from nowhere are all amazing Korean movies

The Man from Nowhere was one of the best movies of the decade for me. The Chaser is another really good one

What was the significance of the rock and water in the movie? 

What's their role in korean feng shui?

I guess I should post in the Unpopular Opinions thread because I hated it. 

Just watched it and am in a similar boat. I didn't hate it but it's forgettable for me. Partly because I was expecting an insane twist at the end but it never came for me. I will say it's a pretty original/creative film though.

Went in expecting nothing. Read the first 4-5 posts here, then stopped. Didn't even watch the preview.

 

I thought it was very good, almost great. 8.5 out of 10

Check the subtitles though. Some versions are trash.
