The director of 'The Good, The Bad, The Weird' and 'I Saw the Devil' moves his act to television, with some of the edges sanded down.
"And along with cat POV and cat-visions, after syncing with its brain, Dr. Koh develops cat-like reflexes. "
how in the world is this not a riotous satire comedy??
As someone who really likes Good/Bad/Weird but thought that I Saw The Devil was WAY too much, it’s still depressing to me that he could be sanded down in any way.
Frankly the rise of prestige tv has only been a net negative for me. I’m very bad at watching television, especially 40+ min episode shows, because I generally have a hard time justifying the time spent on tv versus just watching more movies. When I DO watch tv I’m watching things that are considered classics, not stuff that’s still on the air.
It’s actually news to me that Park Chan-Wook even worked on a tv show. Maybe I’m out of touch. But I did make the effort to start Miami Vice in an effort to become a Michael Mann completist (I know his influence over the show is only partial) but I think I really need to make sure I see Top of The Lake and Little Drummer Girl.
