Top Korean Films of 2010

9. Rolling Home With a Bull

One of the year's most surprising efforts, Lim Soon-rye's fifth feature is an extraordinary road movie with a concept that comes dangerously close to being labeled as quirky but instead winds up being heartfelt and meditative.  Kim Young-pil and Kong Hyo-jin excel in Rolling Home With a Bull, their performances throughout are fresh and natural.  The low-budget film offers a unique view of Korea, far from the concrete jungle of Seoul or the vibrant harbor of Busan.  Instead we wind through roads, regions and mountains as we contemplate how notions of family and responsibility have changed in the modern era.  A great antidote to the sometimes overly familiar terrain of commercial modern Korean cinema.
