Kim Ki-duk's "The Isle" Selected a Most Difficult Movie

2008/04/17 Source

Director Kim Ki-duk's "The Isle (Seom)" was selected as one of the 10 most difficult films to watch (but still insanely awesome) movies by Killer Film, an American online film site.

Coming in at ninth, "The Isle" is a strange love story between a prostitute and a man on the run from the cops. The movie had shocked the audience with some of the goriest scenes involving fish hooks and genital mutilation. The list proves that director Kim's films are too complex to understand for foreign audience as well. Kim has been known for his unique (and sometimes bizarre) interpretations of human nature. His other works include highly acclaimed "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring ", "Samaria", and "Bad Guy".

The film topping the 10 most difficult films to watch list was "Ichi, the Killer" directed by Japanese director Takashi Miike. Other films on the list include "Irreversable" with Monica Bellucci at second place, a mock documentary "Blair Witch Project" at fourth, and Gus Van Sant's "Elephant" at seventh.
