Resolved Question: Would you call Park Chan
For my A level film studies coursework i am required to do a project on a subject of my choosing. I have chosen to research how Park Chan-Wook is an Auteur, and because of this his films are very identifiable even over different genres. For my project i need primary research and any opinions you have will count towards that.
The films i have chosen to research are as follows:
I'm A Cyborg (Rom-Com)
Joint Security Area (War Drama)
However any ideas you have about other Park Chan Wook films will also help my research.
I have supplied a link to Youtube where i have previously asked this question, this link may help provide more information.
You dont have to be an expert on the subject :P i am simply looking for peoples opinions and ideas on the subject.
Any comments will be greatly recieved :)
Thank you for reading x
