-MOVIE OF THE WEEK- Mother (2009)
A Korean drama by the critically acclaimed director, Bong Joon-ho. This movie is primarily about the mother-son relationship, which has a murder mystery as its backdrop. The less is said and known, is better. As the towering performances, especially Kim Hye-ja, keeps you right at the edge of your seat. At all times, you are trying to guess what is going to happen next. This movie has its intense pulse pounding moments, intrigue, drama and as it is in all Bong Joon-ho's films, a tinge of black humor. In my opinion it is his best work to date.
