3/4 

Very dark Korean film with shades of Chan-wook Park Revenge trilogy. Everything is spelled out from the get go, but that doesn't mean the film lets up on the tension. The characters are just as dark and twisted as the story - which is kind of a downer, but riveting.

"The Chaser" by Yojimbo

An ex-cop fired for corruption now working as a pimp investigates when his girls start to go missing, leading him to a serial killer who is holding one of them hostage. The Chaser is not really what I was expecting. I was hoping for a kind of serial killer version of Heat, but rather than a charismatic criminal mastermind like a Hannibal Lecter, the villain here is just a nasty, sadistic little scumbag. He is also caught very early on in the film and spends much of it in custody as our "hero" tries to track down the missing girl before he is released for lack of evidence, which kind of dispenses with the mystery aspect of the story as well. For these reasons the film skirts a little too close to torture porn for my tastes and so it didn't appeal to me as much as it might have. On the plus...
