Director: Hong Sang-Soo
Year Released: 2018
A woman (Kim Min-Hee) sits in front of her iMac while people gather and talk about pressing issues in their lives ... and then she gets invited to sit with a group and she declines their offer. That's the movie. I'm guessing this was largely improvised by Hong, who never heard of the word "redundant" before - the adulation he continuously receives from the critical community is, at this point, baffling: the conversations are rehashes of discussions from his other movies - irate females who have had it with passive-aggressive males, who drink and screw around too much - and it's tough to give a damn about any of them because there's little (if any) back story. Would it kill him to, I dunno, find a co-writer? Maybe someone with some other perspective? Quality generally does not equal quantity with one key exception: getting hammered quickly (... which I've said before).
