There are many kinds of violence and this thriller will get your mind racing about the many possibilities and motivations for it. At the center of the story is someone prone to believe and trust too easily. Lee Chang-dong last made a film eight years ago, and since then he meditated on this one. All that time has done him good. I felt I was a part of each scene and turn of events, from the pulse of a disco to burning structures and hearts. The film is long, but full of depth, interesting themes, great acting and pulse quickening excitement. North American premiere seen at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.
