    I Saw The Devil.

    I think it's the only one I've seen, that I know of anyway. I do love it though. I wouldn't mind seeing some more really, I've heard they are generally pretty damn good.

                    Damn, korean movies are still widely unknown to a wider audience, what a shame. But most likely, they won't appreciate it.

                      Off the top of my head, can't think of any more right now, but there are most definitely more. Some amazing cinema comes out of South Korea quite frequently.

                          You 're right. They slipped kinda through - nevertheless, both are recommended.

                            I forgot about this movie until recently. Might have to give it a rewatch soon.

                              I'll vouch for Save the Green Planet, also. Don't let the cover art(one of two I've seen) fool you - it's a well-done and sometimes nasty sci-fi comedy w/ heart.
                              There is no such thing as DEATH; it's just a trrransformation.

                              My old place in toronto had a bidet...I liked using it, cleaned the shit outta there + it felt good. Ever masturbate with a stream of water on your asshole? Feels great, try it sometime.
