Publisher's description: South Korea is home to one of the most vibrant film industries in the world today, producing movies for a strong domestic market that are also beginning to get attention and draw audiences worldwide. This book presents a comprehensive analysis of twenty-one of the most well-known South Korean films of the twenty-first century from eight major directors. Building his analysis on contemporary film theory and philosophy, as well as interviews and other primary sources, Steve Choe makes a case that these often violent films pose urgent ethical dilemmas central to life in the age of neoliberal globalization.
