    November 1, 2005 Billliant Allegory of Korean History in the Eighti Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Lloyd clearly has no idea what he's talking about. the film is allegory of Korean history in the eighties starting with a man who leaves university and a burgeoning relationship with a young fellow college student and his psychological decline, starting from his unwitting killing of a Kwangju student in 1980 during the massacre after Chun Doo-hwan's coup d'etat. the film then, in reverse, travels through his psychological disintegration and eventual suicide beginning with his work as a police detective and reflecting the brutal interrogation techniques used by the police against pro-democracy youth during the eighties. This may seem implausible to our "reviewer" Lloyd, but he would do better reading up on recent Korean history, because the film depicts facts, not fantasies.
