The Good, the Bad, the Weird (놈놈놈) in 35mm

A ray of Sergio Leone shines through Kim Jee-woon’s spaghetti Western, The Good, the Bad, the Weird, but with a twist of irresistible “weirdness,” witty sensation, and stunning visual and sound elements. Song Kang-ho is The Weird, a bandit who stumbles upon a treasure map, which prompts a spiral chase game between him, The Good, and The Bad in the vast land of Manchuria of the late 1930s. Song, once again, proves his multifaceted expertise which enables him to become any “weird” character he’d like to, while maintaining his authentic core presence in the depiction. The Good, the Bad, the Weird, a spectacular blockbuster, is a declaration for a new genre—Kimchi Western.
