The Good, The Bad, The Weird

The Good, The Bad, The Weird

Sometimes I hate logging on Letterboxd because I get embarrassed that I haven't seen some of these films until now. Films can slip by.
Anyway, I was very much in to the Korean New Wave and have basically seen all the highlights... even most of Jee-woon Kim's films. But never this one.

Anyway, Mubi put this up and I finally checked it out. Fantastic film. Kang-ho Song is great as always... as well as the entire cast. Beautiful cinematography, production design and stunt coordination. And there are some shots that I have NO IDEA how they pulled off... remember this is 35mm and before drones were commonplace... so the shot that soars over the train in to the desert, then revealing Kang-ho Song as he runs towards the camera with bullets hitting near his scampering feet... WTF! Amazing. George Miller level chases.

Watched on Mubi. If I get the chance to see this on the big screen, I most definitely will.
