LKFF Preview of I SAW THE DEVIL + Q&A with director Kim Jee-woon

 I SAW THE DEVIL is the last delivery from cult Korean director, Kim Jee-woon exploring the theme of vengeance; young secret agent goes on a hunt and torture rampage of the killer of his fiancée.  I SAW THE DEVIL does not shy away from vicious violence, both displayed by the killer and the agent, with some graphic scenes that resulted in the film being panned by critics in Korean and also banned. Twice. The government being fearful for the mental health of Korean citizens. However, when th...

*Raindance Preview Review* Yellow Kid [2009] dir Tetsuya Mariko

 YELLOW KID tells the story of Tamura, a young man who inspired by the "Yellow Kid" comic character decides to become a boxer. We are then introduced to Hattori, a mangaka who is looking to make a sequel to the original "Yellow Kid" and insinuates his way into a boxing gym to find his inspiration. Add to this a violent young thug, Enomoto, the middleweight boxing champion, Mikuni, who is engaged to Hattori's ex-girlfriend and just a few comic book sequences, that's Yellow Ki...

*Raindance Preview Review* Autumn Adagio [2009] dir Tsuki Inoue

"Autumn Adagio" is Tsuki Inoue's first feature, made with the money she won for the Grand Prize in Yubari the previous with "The Woman Who is Beating the Earth" (more on this film later).      It tells the story of a repressed 40-year old nun, who through three encounters with different men, reflects on her femininity and her life. She meets a tedious middle aged man who cannot stop bothering her, a ballet dancer who advises her to play...

*Raindance Preview Review* Hi! Otsuka Drugstore [2009] dir Yu Katsumata

 Hi! Otsuka Drugstore’s beginning is misleading; it doesn’t hint at the emotional heart that underpins the film.The story revolves around the unlikely friendship between Otsuka, middle-aged woman owner of Otsuka drugstore (seen above) and a high school girl, Nakasaku Emi (also seen above). Otsuka tries to advise the girl with her crazy approach that actually hides some good advice and her similar experience in the past – of which we are informed throughout the film through flashback.I...

*Raindance Preview Review* Lost and Found [2008] dir Nobuyuki Miyake

Miyake's film is exactly what it says on the tagline - "Something that is once lost but is found again."The characters in this film bump into each other by losing and finding things around a nameless train station. It is film dependent on causality and it is a rather affecting film. You begin to reflect on what you lost and what you have found. Ultimately, it is all about life. Life is all about losing and finding, being at a place and time, somewhere. And those are the best films - th...

*Raindance Preview Review* Boys on the Run [2010] dir Daisuke Miura

  "Boys on the Run" (ボーイズ・オン・ザ・ラン) is most definitely a strange beast. The debut feature of successful theatre director, Daisuke Miura and starring Kazunobu Mineta (The Shonen Merickensack, Oh My Buddha) in the main role. Based on a manga of the same name, as many Japanese films are.  The description attached to it does not even come near to describing what this film really is - "A dementedly hilarious sex-comedy about a 29-year-old virgin obsessed...

*Raindance Preview Review* HUGE (2010) dir Ben Miller

  Ben Miller's first delivery as a film director is just as amateur as it sounds. Miller, of British comedy duo Armstrong & Miller, should be able to tackle the subject of his first film better than anyone else: the nature of a comedy duo. However, the story of the film feels old, too predictable and doesn't add anything new to the "comedian film". The story basically tells the story of Warren and Clark, a would-be comedy duo who have more in common with an old couple tha...
