Memories of Murder

DIRECTED BY - Joon-Ho Bong

This shocking tale is designed to repulse viewers, chiefly because it's based on a horrific true story. Following the activities of South Korea's first serial killer, MEMORIES OF MURDER tracks the gruesome events through the eyes of the two detectives investigating the case. The murders unfolded in 1986, a time when South Korea fell under the watchful eye of a military dictatorship, meaning that technological advances were scant, and the detectives had precious little evidence to work from. The victims were all women from various age ranges, and all were raped and slain by the killer. This dramatic reconstruction of events makes for compulsive viewing, and harks back to a time when the innocence of South Korea's citizens was truly shattered.
