Bad Guy

Korean director Kim Ki-duk is best known here for his gentle Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter . . . and Spring (2004), but much of his work belongs to the “cinema of cruelty” school associated with Michael Haneke. In this 2001 feature a woman is forced into prostitution by a thug who can express his obsessive love for her only by watching her exploitation through a two-way mirror. The audience is subjected to a series of emotional contortions, encouraged to experience them voyeuristically, and then scolded for doing so. The pathetic music Kim favors is profoundly at odds with his chilly attitude toward the characters. In Korean with subtitles. 100 min.
