Memories of Murder

Based partly on the real-life serial killings of the late 1980s, early 90s, this dark crime procedural follows a group of detectives scouring the countryside, increasingly desperate to solve the case. Bong’s harrowing mystery incorporates ghostly elements of folklore alongside harsh geopolitical critique to sustain a constantly gripping, ever-unfolding thriller.
