Ku runs into an old friend who insists he come over for dinner and he stays the night at his friend's house. Yet, the next day, Ku finds himself in trouble with an alleged accusation of seducing his friend's wife. Later, he travels to Jeju Island to give a lecture. He hooks up with a painter for another long night of drinking. The day after, Ku is invited to the painter's where he happens to see his ex-girlfriend. Written by Pusan International Film Festival

More mindlessness from a predictable director
14 January 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

LIKE YOU KNOW IT ALL is yet another film that sees Korean director Hong Sang-soo deep within his comfort zone with a movie about an indie film director who spends his time hanging around with local film students. It's as predictable as they come for those who've seen any of his other works, and there seems to be even less incident, even less point to it all, than ever before.

The film is split roughly into two halves although they're both interchangeable when it comes down to it. The first half sees the protagonist lazing around and drinking and chatting to various inconsequential people; he commits something of faux pas with his buddy's wife, so goes elsewhere for the second half. Overall though, absolutely nothing in the way of interest happens and all I did was become bored out of my mind at the sheer mundane day-to-day life of these self-centred characters.
