'Poetry' StillsAsian Cinema Films 2012 Korean Cinema Stills
Let me just start by saying that Korean cinema thoroughly stresses me out. Maybe it is due to the fact that it does hit so close to home. or maybe it is because Poetry is a Lee Chang-dong's creation. Lee Chang-dong's films have the capacity to bring real emotions onto screen and fully translate to the audience the reality of the situation without the glossiness that films are coated with these days. Like all of Lee's films like Peppermint Candy (2000), Oasis (2002), Secret Sunshine (2007), and now Poetry (2010), there is a sting of uneasiness to his films that jolts your whole being and forces you to reevaluate your life in ways you never thought you would. Lee is certainly a masterful filmmaker. Now, take a gander at Poetry.
(2010, Lee Chang Dong)
