Top 10 Korean Films of 2014

6. The Avian Kind

A lushly filmed and entrancing mystery, The Avian Kind is one of the most unique Korean films of 2014, marking a high point for director Shin Yeong-shik, whose body of work has swelled in recent years. Very philosophical but also framed by engaging plot devices and the odd foray into genre territory, the film boasts a terrific cast and wonderful crew, particularly in the cinematography and music department, all of which are confidently put together under the keen eye of Shin.

Unfortunately, The Avian Kind hasn’t been widely screened and is in danger of falling off the radar. I’m sure Shin will continue to make great films but it would be a shame to see this gem drop into anonymity.
