I am a huge Korean cinema fan. Most of the films I have posted up here have been North American with a few foreign films here and there, but my real interest in film is with Asia. I don’t know how they do it, but they just kick the butt off any American or Canadian film I’ve ever seen.

**Thar be spoilers**

Memories of Murder is based off a true life event. A serial killer in South Korea went around killing women. He has not been caught to this day, because they still don’t know who it was. This was back in the 1980s and South Korea has a 15 year statute of limitations, and well, it’s been longer than that so nothing would happen to him if he came forth.

Anywho, the movie is awesome. If you’re familiar with Korean cinema, you’ll appreciate and recognize the awesome humor bits. The ending is crazy and I can’t believe they never caught the guy. Great film and definitely worth the time to watch.

I also wanted to mention this is rated an 8.1 on IMDB (if that matters for you) and currently has 14 award wins and 2 nominations. Wowzers.
