Seeds of greatness drowned in seas of dull
20 April 2017 | by jinsilverSee all my reviews

There are a few brief redeeming qualities to this pair of movies. First, Ji-hye Ahn and In-hye Oh ARE hot as hell, and bare their chests, and that alone almost makes it worth it if that's what you're here for. There were several moments of weird surrealism in the first (Red Vacation) and one particular scene of uncomfortable drunkenness in the second (Black Wedding) that almost sold the movie for me, if it hadn't been for all the filler.

Unfortunately, the first film feels like a director's first film, lingering on every shot for no particular reason, just because Criterion movies also lingered with purpose. At least it tried to play up a bit of camp, and it would have been much better if it had more. The second suffered from a lack of direction and nonstop shakycam: every scene is hand-held instead of set on a tripod. Combine with a banal story, that only gets interesting in the last five minutes, and it's really hard to sit through. Almost every moment of both segments felt like a chore just to watch, so little happens with so little meaning.

The video quality is atrocious, even for Amazon video. Not only is it not HD, it's such low quality SD that it looks like a 1CD XviD download from 2003. All of the beautiful scenery in the first segment is utterly spoiled by the low quality. That may not be the director's fault, but this is how many people will watch it, so it's valid. Amazon video is horrible.

Ultimately, whether it's drama, comedy, weirdness, or nudity that you want, you'd be better off getting it elsewhere.
