“Movie’s fascination lies not only in the wheels-within-wheels story, but also in the way helmer Jeong makes an implausible plot seem logical within its own universe.”
“Hard edged violence, graphic imagery with an exceptionally dark sense of humour.”
“Very entertaining and technically impressive, Our Town is one of Korea’s most striking films of the past couple years.”
“A taut, sick thriller which provides an intriguing look into the minds of murderers.”
