The Mother

From director Joon-ho Bong (maker of the incredible The Host) comes one of the strangest detective movies you will ever see. Hye-ja Kim is excellent as a mother who takes matters into her own hands when her simple son (Bin Won) is accused of murder. The director has a gift for inserting awkward humor into serious matters, and the mother-and-son relationship at the core of the film is a stomach-turner. Kim is a rather unreliable detective, giving the film a true sense of mystery and intrigue: Any decision she makes is probably the wrong one, because she has no idea what she’s doing. You know this movie is going to be wonderfully weird when Kim performs an odd dance during the opening credits. Bong delivers again; he’s one of cinema’s more interesting directors.
