Film Review
  • Sunny (2008): Representations of Militarism, Masculinity, and the Korean Experience of the Vietnam War 02/19/2013
    Sunny is a 2008 South Korean film directed by Lee Jun-ik about a woman who goes to extraordinary lengths to be with her husband who has been conscripted to fight in the Vietnam War. In this film analysis essay, OH Kyung-jin discusses the historical context of both Korea's involvement in Vietnam, and the various treatments of that experience in Korean film. The essay focuses particularly on Sunny (2008), which also allows the author to reflect on the formation and reformation of feminine identities in compliance with the demands of a hyper-masculinized and militarized social environment.

  • Sometimes in April: When one fails, we all fail 04/03/2009
    Elliot Waring reviews the 2005 film Sometimes in April, written and directed by Raoul Peck.

    Waring writes: "What is contained within this “review” is a brief summary of the film and some of the questions which jump off the screen as you watch. Other than that, this reviewer can only say, watch this film. Watch this film and let it be a lesson to you to never forsake your fellow man, to never let humanity fail on such an epic scale again, to never sit idly by while atrocities are played out in front of you. Allowing violence and pain to pass by you unquestioned is an act of violence in and of itself."
