Top 10 Korean Films of 2015

5. Reach for the SKY

The year’s best Korean documentary, and another BIFF gem, Reach for the SKY takes aim at the country’s exceptionally competitive education system, specifically the draining trials to prepare for the college entrance exam. Compelling from start to finish and oozing a quiet menace with its thriller-like editing, this Korea-Belgium co-production, from directors Choi Woo-young and Steven Dhoedt, provides ample context and detail, allows us to peer into the mindsets of its youthful characters and lingers long after the credits.
