Nowhere to Hide [DVD] [1999]

SKU:11154298
Release Date:04/17/2001
Rating:
Korean maverick auteur Lee Myung-Se directs this wildly exuberant, genre-crunching, police-comedy action flick. Held together with only the barest of plot elements, this film is a gleeful romp through a litany of film styles and references. Following a gangland murder in a popular Seoul shopping area, bumptious, cock-sure detective Woo ( Lee regular Park Joong Hoon) and his marginally more contemplative partner Kim (Jang Dong-Kun) comb the city for the killer (former heartthrob Ahn Sung-Ki). Woo stumbles from one jaw-dropping sequence of stylized violence to another until he has his final two-fisted showdown with the killer. Nowhere to Hide was the second-highest-grossing film of 1999 in Korea and an audience favorite at the 1999 Pusan Film Festival and the 2000 Sundance Festival.
