| A compelling movie on a relatively unexplored subject
What turned me on to Open City in the first place was the compelling plot. When was the last time you saw a movie about pickpocketing? There are very few movies in between K-Dramas and Korean thriller movies, so I was happy to find this movie. The characters are well developed and unique; many crime movies have very similar characters to each other, but Open City has many memorable ones. The plot is very well developed, keeping the viewer on their feet, but at the same time is easy to follow. I recommend this movie even if you don't know Korean. I was able to follow the plot fine even by just reading the subtitles. I look forward to see what Sang-ki Lee will come up with next...
