    Save the Green Planet!

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Hallyu in its purest form. Raw, independent in its style and substance, but still part of a larger cinematic and political movement we know in english as The Korean New Wave.

    I love absolutely everything about this film. I knew Sandler was going to give me a year's best performance from the first trailer. The cinematography of Darius Khondji is absolutely stellar. The…
