Apocalyptic viewpoint not welcomed by care-free public
7 December 2005 | by luke-35See all my reviews

Segimal is a bold statement and an autopsy of modern Korean society at the dawn of the new millennium.

After critical success of No. 3, the director Song now sharpens the edge of divulging the extremities of social disorder and moral hazard prevalent in contemporary urban Korean life. Every piece of characters' views of value is dismantled as the result of the development of technocracy in Korean daily life while some positive prospect on the new era is made after the critical retrospect of the last millennium.

An evaluative text that must be come across, but too pessimistic tenet has hindered its conveyance of real messages and resulted in a bust in box office. A good example for the loss of focus due to too frenetic demonstration of associated events without fixed context.
