That is, will the writer use past or present tense in terms of verbs and the action of the story?|
KoreanImported Total admissions: One day ina math professor named Kim Myung-ho took a crossbow and confronted a judge as he was returning home to his apartment. Kim had been fired by his university for pointing out an error committed by his colleagues on the school's entrance exam.
Suing for reinstatement, he lost his case after a series of what he believed were highly biased rulings by the judge. His anger finally boiling over, he took a crossbow and waited in the dark stairway of the judge's apartment building.
Kim says that he only wanted to scare the judge, and never intended violence. They're unchallenged, like gangsters, fearing no one.
I thought this judge needed to feel fear. Kim was charged with attempted murder, and found himself once again at the mercy of Korea's judicial system. This film, based on interviews, news articles and court records and slightly embellished -- a point that would later cause controversydepicts Kim's trial for attempted murder and the efforts of a struggling attorney to defend him.
If the professor had felt cynical about biased judgments in his first trial, this one -- in which the victim himself was a judge -- proved to be far more dramatic.
With Kim more or less giving up any hope of receiving a fair trial, he takes this opportunity to launch his own legal and moral assault on the courts.
Kim is played by veteran actor Ahn Sung-ki Radio Star. He once was known for roles like this, and it's exciting to see him once again depict this sort of idealistic, fiercely committed intellectual willing to stand up and speak truth to power. Ahn portrays him not as some kind of persecuted saint, but as a cantankerous, difficult man with faults of his own.
Nonetheless, when he goes head-to-head with the judge assigned to his case, one can't help but cheer him on. Director Chung Ji-young White Badge has also assembled a talented group of other actors to fill out the cast. Park Won-sang is great as the attorney arguing on Kim's behalf, and trying to keep him under control.
Although his character arc is somewhat predictable, the way he is played is always engaging. Park's character finds an important ally in a journalist played by Kim Ji-ho, and their close too close? One also has to mention the performance of Moon Sung-keun Jealousy Is My Middle Namewhose icy portrayal of an arrogant, contemptuous judge is unforgettable.
By sheer coincidence, Unbowed was released just four months after the film Silenced -- another blistering critique of Korean's court system -- rode a wave of viewer outrage to box office glory.
It seemed highly unlikely that lightning would strike twice, but apparently, ordinary citizens' anger at the judicial system was enough to support two blockbuster hits.
Despite its very modest budget and lack of popular young stars, Unbowed touched off another media firestorm and would ultimately sell an astonishing 3. This came as a particular vindication for Chung Ji-young, famous for his iconic works of the early s, but more recently written off by most observers as a has-been director.
Without making any attempt to copy the style of the younger generation of directors, Chung has made an entertaining, forceful work that successfully carries the idealism and social concerns of s Korean cinema into the present.
The widespread popularity of this film, which out-grossed nearly all of the mega-budgeted genre films of the previous year, has upended many people's most basic assumptions about the Korean audience.
Meanwhile, with Chung already planning out his next feature, it seems a career has been reborn.
Darcy Paquet Pacemaker I enjoy sports for many reasons. There are the obvious visceral pleasures in witnessing athletic excellence and the emotional pleasures of victory over defeat. As a former Clevelander, there is also the emotional bond of disappointment in constant defeat.
But there are intellectual pleasures as well of sports being a microcosm of political, economic, and social issues pertinent to a particular nation or region.
My elevator pitch shorthand about my personal interest in sports has become that I'm more an anthropologist of sport than a fan per se. This is mainly why I have a strong interest in Sports films.
They can work off the inherent drama in competition to reveal the social networks that underlie this drama, even when not intentional. And in spite of the somewhat dissatisfying delivery of a Sports drama that is Kim Dal-jung's film Pacemaker, I am able to find intellectual pleasure in the various topics I can mine from its minute running time.
If Pacemaker were an Olympic marathon runner, it would be the 4th fastest time ever. The Missing Body has developed towards him over the years. This film is not a true story.
The audience knew this because it was released in January before the London Summer Olympics took place. Watching the film now, you know it's not based in real life because no Africans claim any medals.
The film hoped to promote box office success from the anticipation of glory in the upcoming Olympics regardless of event. South Korea ended up tying her record of most medals won - 28 - at the Olympics and did this with her smallest contingent of athletes since Accuracy, honesty, and truth in narrative nonfiction Who do we trust?

Last summer I participated in the Rayado program at Philmont Scout Ranch.
K orean cinema opened the year with a remarkable show of strength. From the Lunar New Year in January until the middle of April, a string of local films held the top spot at the box office, including Dancing Queen, Unbowed, Nameless Gangster, Love Fiction, Helpless, and Architecture Significantly, none of these works qualified as big budget productions, so their dominance at the .
