HanCinema Film Review: Phantom Detective

So the New York Times didn’t like the film, but I sure did. People are so invested into adrenaline-pumping films nowadays that slower-paced films are often blindly dismissed. Don’t do that to “Phantom Detective!” Here’s a snippet of my HanCinema review: Director Jo Sung-hee’s Phantom Detective¬†is a play on the crime noir complete with anti-heroContinue reading “HanCinema Film Review: Phantom Detective”

Fashion King: Episode 18 Recap
