A SPECIAL LADY
미옥 | 2017 | South Korea | Dir. Lee An-kyu | 90min
A story of a woman who fights against the ruthless world of man’s society, to protect her only son.
The spirit of US pulp crime writer Jim Thompson looms large over this terrific neo-noir, which deals with common themes in Korean genre cinema - money, power, corruption and lies - and whose characters all turn out to have more dark secrets than the last.
