Top 10 Korean Films of 2015

4. Alone

Indies didn’t shine they way they have in the past at the Busan Film Festival this year, yet some gems were still evident, and best among them was Alone, the second film from Park Hong-min (A Fish, 2011). Dealing with gentrification and modern masculinity in a confused urban landscape, the film’s main protagonist finds himself waking up, again and again, from increasingly bizarre nightmares, always trying to escape his neighborhood yet each time twisting back to his starting point. Park follows him with an eery, gliding camera, and the result is infectious and unsettling.
