Park Chan-wook

Joint Security Area

Joint Security Area

Joint Security Area was something of a miracle for director Park Chan-wook. Nowadays, the world of cinema knows him for Oldboy and Thirst, but in the year 2000, he was a part-time movie critic with nothing but two financial and critical failures to his name. The release of Joint Security Area helped to usher in not only Park Chan-wook's career, but an entirely new era in South Korean film-making through it's ambition and craft.
