Time d. Kim Ki-duk, 2006

So this is what it's like to grow old together, apparently. Kim Ki-duk creates a portrait of the human need for the uncanny in love: the simultaneous search for the familiar and the new. This theme becomes a bit unwieldy around the mid-point, but Kim wraps it up nice at the end, turning the film in on itself in a pretty clever manner. Going through it a second time, it's clear that the film is very well-structured, with every part finding an emotional rhyme in another part of the film. Very well crafted and...ugh, I'm tired of this boring writing. Goodnight. I'll have something good, maybe, about Modern Times tomorrow.
