Big Screen Big Apple- I Saw The Devil(2010) Sunday Feb. 20th at 1pm
It's nice to see that there are two films worth mentioning at the Film Society Lincoln Center this weekend. The first, of course, being Hobo With A Shotgun. It probably has something to do with the New York Film Festival's pre-game known as Film Comments Select, which is running from now until the beginning of March. Out of the couple of dozen films that will be screening over this time, I've picked out a couple of interest to highlight in this little old blog. This Sunday afternoon,you might want to head on down to the Walter Reade Theater to catch Kim Ji-Woon's I Saw The Devil(2010),a chaotic thriller that was banned in South Korea for being too graphic and "offensive to human dignity".
Filmlinc.com says -"Giving new meaning to catch-and-release, a secret agent searches for the serial wacko who murdered his fiancée and takes a very special form of vengeance. The twisty, gruesome new thriller by the director of The Good, The Bad, The Weird was initially banned in South Korea for its meticulous attention to bloody detail. Marked by Kim’s agile set pieces, and a sustained mood of encroaching darkness, it stars Lee Byung-hun (The Good, The Bad) and Choi Min-sik (Oldboy)."
Saturday February 20th @ 1PM Walter Reade Theater, West 65th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Ave, on the upper level, Upper West Side
