Korean Film Festival

It is the first ever Korean Film Festival in Atlanta, taking place at four cinemas: 2 in town, one in Sandy Springs and on in Athens.

So yesterday evening I found myself at the Landmark Midtown Cinema to see The King and the Clown, a 2005 film which proved very popular in Korea.

The film takes place at the turn of the 16th century, about traveling minstrels during the reign of Yeonsan-gun. You can barely watch this film without thinking HAMLET! (remember the Charlton Heston scene in Kenneth Branaugh's film version of the play?)

That's all I will say. Go see it. I enjoyed it.

Speaking o movies I finally saw Margin Call, which you - whoever you are - must also go see. This is a good film.
