Memories Of Murder (Widescreen)

About this item

Memories of Murder is a policier based on the actual case of the first recorded serial killer in Korea's history. The rape murders began in 1986 in Hwaseong, a small village south of Seoul, and continued for several years during a time of political upheaval in South Korea. Detective Park Doo-man (Song Kang-ho of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance), an overconfident local cop, is assigned to the case, taking along his partner, Detective Cho Yong-koo (Kim Rwe-ha), whose interrogation methods involve covering his boot with a cloth so it won't leave scratches on detainees' necks. After the first few murders, they quickly narrow their sights on a suspect (Park Noh-shik). Seo Tae-yoon (Kim Sang-kyung of Turning Gate), a young detective from Seoul, volunteers to work on the case. Park resents his presence, but Seo quickly realizes that the locals have the wrong man. Before he can share his ideas, the department is humiliated, and the police chief is replaced. Seo quietly begins to piece together a pattern to the murders. For one thing, they all took place in the rain, and the victims all wore red. But the murderer seems to be one step ahead of the cops. Working independently (they disdain each other's methods), Park and Seo stumble upon another suspect, and the two local cops work on beating a confession out of him. But it's soon clear that they've arrested the wrong man yet again. They become more desperate, and the case begins to take a devastating toll on the policemen's lives. Memories of Murder, directed by Bong Joon-ho from a script by Bong, Kim Kwang-rim, and Shim Sung-bo, was a huge box-office hit in South Korea. The film won several awards at the 2003 San Sebasti?n Film Festival and was also shown at the 2004 New York Korean Film Festival. ~ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide.

The Best Serial Killer Movie Of All Time
3/11/2014

Customer review by Birk34

5.0 stars 3/11/2014 by Birk34
by Birk34

"Memories of Murder" Is another 5/5 Stars, movie coming from South Korea. This is THE BEST SERIAL KILLER MOVIE OF ALL TIME. Better than Se7en, Silence of the Lambs, and Zodiac. The movie that closest resembles this is David Finchers's Zodiac. The simple clues to the killer, the cinematography, the music, the character development, are all perfect. Why it stands out is because it is Rich in Dialogue and Atmosphere, created by Stunning Cinematography. The Final 5 minutes of the film is one of the Best endings of any movie ever. Its Bone Chilling. Memories of Murder is the Pinnacle Of South Korean Film...with Oldboy(2003) a very close #2. The Quality of the DVD itself is not the best, not 720p even while playing through a Blu-Ray Player. But with an 1.85 Aspect Ratio, which means there are no Black Bars on you TV (assuming you have a Widescreen TV, which is just about every TV Made after 2008). Totally worth the Purchase based on the sheer Quality of the Film Itself. Other Recommendations: I Saw The Devil(2010), Oldboy(2003), The Man From Nowhere(2010), Mother(2009), A Bittersweet Life(2005), Sympathy for Mr Vengeance(2002), The Chaser(2008), Confession of Murder(2012).
