Memories of Murder

Memories of Murder ★★★½

I found most of the film to be monotonous and struggled to care for any of the characters despite always being interested in how the story would play out and wanting to find out who the murderer was, but I admire the inclusion of slapstick humor and satire to accentuate the story’s political allegory as well as the use of deep focus and shadow. Additionally, one cannot forget the haunting ending whose meaning becomes much more profound when further examined.
