This news has taken me by surprise.?? On December 11 the outstanding Korean film Memories of Murder will be released on Blu-Ray in South Korea.?? Thankfully it will have English subtitles and it will be a limited pressing so those who are fans of the film may want to get their pre-orders in early as these Korean limited pressings can sell out quickly.?? For those of you who are unaware of the film it is based on the unsolved series of murders that occurred in South Korea during 1986 and 1991 which were committed by the countries first serial killer.?? This well received film documents the case and features strong performances from the leading actors and many stand out moments.?? This is by far my favourite Korean film, closely followed by The Chaser (Hong-jin Na, 2008).?? I have just pre-ordered a copy from the reliable company Yes Asia along with the Hong Kong Blu-Ray release of Infernal Affairs (Andrew Lau and Alan Mak, 2002) which I have been meaning to purchase for some time now.?? I cannot recommend Memories of Murder highly enough and suggest all Blu-Ray/cult cinema aficionados purchase a copy as soon as possible.?? This also reminds me that I should get my rare British Quad poster of this film framed.?? If only I had somewhere to hang it.
