CULTURE & ENTERTAINMENT: Hong Sang-Soo, the Woody Allen of Korea

Thanks to Open Culture and Martin Scorsese we discovered filmmaker Hong Sang-soo, the Woody Allen of Korea. He hardly needs further presentation after that title, but still we share with you his words: “for me, there’s something especially interesting about the films of Hong Sangsoo. It’s got to do with his masterful sense of storytelling. In each of his films that I’ve managed to see, everything kind of starts unassumingly” — but then things “unpeel like an orange.” Open culture compiled fragments of Sangsoo movies that ca be seen in YouTube and one full film: The Day a Pig Fell into a Well. Have a look at all this goodness in Open Culture. E.T.P. A bit over 2 hours.
