Weekly Review Round-up (04/14-04/20, 2012)

An enormous amount of reviews marking the stateside releases of a few Korean films, particularly WWII blockbuster My Way and Hong Sang-soo's brilliant The Day He Arrives.  No less than three NY Times writeups this week, I particulary like Manohla Dargis' take on the latest Hong.

The Weekly Review Round-up is a weekly feature which brings together all available reviews of Korean films in the English language (and sometimes French) that have recently appeared on the internet. It is by no means a comprehensive feature and additions are welcome (email pierceconran [at] gmail [dot] com). It appears every Friday morning (GMT+1) on Modern Korean Cinema. For other weekly features, take a look at Korean Cinema News, and the Korean Box Office UpdateReviews and features on Korean film also appear regularly on the site.
