New Korean Cinema: Breaking the Waves


"New Korean Cinema" charts the dramatic transformation of South Korea's film industry from the democratization movement of the late 1980s to the 2000s new generation of directors. The author considers such issues as government censorship, the market's embrace of Hollywood films, and the social changes which led to the diversification and surprising commercial strength of contemporary Korean films. Directors such as Hong Sang-soo, Kim Ki-duk, Park Chan-wook, and Bong Joon-ho are studied within their historical context together with a range of films including "Sopyonje" (1993), "Peppermint Candy" (1999), "Oldboy" (2003), and "The Host" (2006).

Desperate to see action but rejected by both marines and paratroopers because he was too short, Murphy eventually found a home with the infantry. He fought through campaigns in Sicily, France and Germany. Although still under twenty-one years old on V-E Day, he was credited with having killed, captured or wounded 240 Germans. He emerged from the war as America's most decorated soldier, having received New Korean Cinema: Breaking the Waves download epub twenty-one medals, including America's highest military decoration, the congressional Medal of Honour. TO HELL AND BACK is a powerfully real portrayal of American GI's at war.
