IDMB Episode 114 - Introduction to Kim Ki-duk (featuring David Bax of Battleship Pretension)

February 27, 2017

David Bax stops by I Do Movies Badly for his fourth tour of duty to talk hockey for far too long (of course) and the idiosyncratic arthouse films of South Korean filmmaker, Kim Ki-duk, who Jim literally had no idea existed until David pitched the idea. What Jim learns is that the films of the Catholic filmmaker living in a predominantely Buddist country are unfairly linked together with the South Korean Revenge subgenre and often deal with themes of what it means to be human and if humans deserve the world in which they live (or live in the world they deserve). Those films are: The Isle (2000), Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring (2003), and Pieta (2012).
