Best South Korean Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Good, the Bad, the Weird

Taking a new spin on Sergio Leone's classic tale, three Korean expats fight over a Russian treasure map in 1930's Manchuria, and one is not all he seems.
Colourful, action packed and hugely entertaining despite a disappointing ending, with great performances, especially from Song Kang-ho as pudgy, plucky Yoon Tae-goo, "The Weird".
The film has a better villain than the original; Park Chang-yi has more character than Angel Eyes.

I don't see why this is second. This is a completely well thought out, meticulously produced piece of cinema. Anything goes and it does. Plus this director outshines Tarantino with consistently unique films.

How come this film isn't number one?
