Bleak madness
15 December 2020 | by wickedmikehamptonSee all my reviews

'Address Unknown' is crazy curiosity from Director Ki-duk Kim.

Destitute Koreans with inadequacy issues live beside an American military base.

One of the characters likes dogs but works for a dog butcher. The half-blind girl uses her puppy to masturbate. Throw in an artist being bullied and a mom desperately trying to reach the American who got her pregnant, and it becomes a wonderful mess.
