OKI'S MOVIE (Hong Sang-soo, 2010)

South Korea
Drinking, filmmaking, ineffectual men, beautiful sexually willing yet emotionally unattainable women, neurotic romances. Yes, Hong is repeating himself. And in fact, repeating himself four times - this film is structured as four interrelated short films.

But what Hong does all the time, he does better than others. And what seems like a moderately uninspired structural conceit actually works to draw out great resonance from an otherwise very familiar story.
