Top Korean Films of 2010

2. Poetry

People talk about event pictures like a summer blockbuster or an adaptation of a very popular book but for me when a new Lee Chang-dong film comes along this is a real cause for celebration as I know it will likely shake me to my foundation and challenge the way I look at the world.  His latest Poetry is no exception and has been cited by many as his finest work.  Besides the film's magnificent script and its fascinating musings on life and certain philosophical concepts, it has also been singled out for the performance of Yun Jeong-hee.  Absent from the screen for 20 years, Yun's return is nothing short of a marvel and for my money's worth the best performance by any actor worldwide in 2010.  Lee has surpassed himself yet again.
