"The world is a mystery."

My word, what a tremendous film. Fairly limited to three people and whom they are concerned with, yet it feels absolutely massive in scope. It has a lot to say for itself, and has an excellent mystery angle thrown in for good measure. I'm going to post a second review that dives deeper into this film. Right now, words escape me on how tremendous this was. My eyes couldn't leave the screen. Steven Yeun is practically perfect. Yoo Ah-in turns in a wonderfully subtle yet layered performance. Jeon Jong-seo is perfect. Three leads, but it never loses sight of the messages that come within this. I might go as far as to say this is one of the most important films released this decade.
See this. It might seem perplexing to some, but the messages this carries are clear and beautifully told through this film.
