My Way – 1 1/2 Buckets
I have a review of My Way up over at my new outlet, Critic Speak. Here’s an excerpt and then a link to the full piece:
Whenever a great South Korean art-house hit like Oldboy, The Chaser, or Mother reaches the United States, American critics invariably offer a glowing assessment of that country’s “screen quota,” which legally requires theaters to play native productions for at least 73 days out of the year. This regulation has undoubtedly grown the Korean film industry and made some of the most distinctive films of the last decade possible.
