Top Korean Films of 2011

1. The Day He Arrives

Hong Sang-soo has made many great films and people tend to completely disagree as to which are his best.  Personally, this might be my favorite of his films, though I admit there are still a handful I haven't seen.  The Day He Arrives is a relaxed and confident work that showcases everything that makes Hong such an essential filmaker.  It's a beautiful film and probably his funniest.  The exchanges that make up the film can seem mundane at times but they manage to dig deep and afford us many paths of interpretation.  Hong at his best, miss this at your peril.
