Joon-ho's recurring actor Kang-ho Song ("Parasite") plays Park Doo-man, a ham-fisted detective obsessed with catching the killer.
Badass, but not too sharp.
Suspense, slapstick, and irony blend into a heady filmic concoction.
"Memories of Murder" is the film that put Bong Joon-ho on the map, for good reason.
The rest is ongoing history of international cinematic success.
Not Rated. 132 mins.
