Salinui chueok
(2003)

Memories of Murder
This movie is considered to be one of the best movies of all time. The movie is so well done, the storyline, the plot, the suspense, the haunting all of it.

If you're trying to get into watching the Korean Classics, I would recommend that this is the movie that you should get started with. This movie is what you call a masterpiece, it delivers in such a way that even you feel that you're a part of it. Yes, now Bong Joon-ho is a household name for his many numerous artful works but this is the movie that made him the Bong Joon-ho we all know and love.

This is the first-ever Serial Killer movie made in South Korea. The story gets started when a couple of women end up dead in a small town. A local detective, inspector, and a Detective from Seoul will try to catch the killer. The pursuit of the killer is comical and dark, the deeds of the killer is perverted and violent. The ending is ambiguous like an art.

This is one of the movies which you have to watch at least once in your lifetime.

The Shawshank Redemption
(1994)

The Shawshank Redemption!
This is one of the best movie ever made, it's a story about hope.

I procrastinated for a few years thinking that this movie might just be a overrated one but boy was I wrong. This is an engaging good hearted film based on a novel by Stephen King.

The story commences with a theme of murder mystery but slowly unfolds into a picture of friendship, faith & hope. We see a plethora of characters that gives /us different life of prisoners, officers their emotions & journey within journey. The climax is one of the best I've ever seen it's an eye opener and we'll surely think of that for a very long time.

Highly recommend it, maybe the best movie I've ever seen. 10/10
