| TRUST NO ONE, NOT EVEN YOURSELF...!
From last year, a well regarded Korean film directed by Lee Chang-dong. A man is making deliveries in a town center when one of a pair of girls (they're scantily clad hawking goods for an unknown product) recognizes him from back home. They restart their relationship, w/he clearly more into it then she is & right off the bat she has him house-sitting her cat & picking her up from the airport (she has gone on a trip to Africa). That she returns w/a taciturn rich stud (Steven Yeun from the Walking Dead) unsettles our hero but he keeps his feelings to himself as they continue to be a threesome of sorts meeting for food or taking in the occasional dance club but then she disappears & his life takes a turn for the obsessive. Already a loner who fancies himself a writer (he cites Faulkner as his hero & even scribes a letter to get his imprisoned father out of jail), this mystery unfortunately fuels his life for the worse as he investigates his missing friend to no avail. A slow burn to be sure, this mood piece takes its time in its journey w/the dividends not being great but some rewards are found.
