Sai Yochi on Korean Films
For people interested in Korean films, there is an absolute must read over at Ryuganji, a translation of an interview with director Sai Yochi. Sai (aka Choi Yang-il) directed last year's film noir SOO (aka ART OF REVENGE). The film flopped in Korea and has only just been released in Japan... but the director gives a really enlightening interview about the comparative state of the two nations' film industries. Some of the comments are pretty good, too.
