Interesting view on Korean tensions. - Joint Security Area review by SR

Spoiler Alert
29/08/2017

A military/government is bad, humans are good vibe. Plays out well against the backdrop of modern day tensions and mistrust of authority.

Soporific drama - Joint Security Area review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
13/05/2021

Although billed as a thriller, this is a slow-paced drama about an investigation into a border incident between North and South Korea. It’s theme is the futility of war, but the main impression you’ll be left with is the futility of making such a soporific drama. Filmed with a mostly static camera, and with no score to highlight any of the stagey scenes, it’s hard to maintain interest.
