ACF 570: Korean Movie Night - The Accidental Gangster

The next free film shown as part of Korean Cultural Service's Korean Movie Night Epic Action series will be:

THE ACCIDENTAL GANGSTER
South Korea, 2008, 103 minutes
New York Premiere
Showtime: TUESDAY, MAY 25 @ 7: 00PM

All films in the series are shown at Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick Street, on the corner of Canal Street, one block from the A, C, E and 1 train Canal Street stops.

Its other title tells you all you need to know: GIBANG RIOT OF 1724. A head-banging action comedy it's a frenetic blend of modern filmmaking style and period storytelling polish. A ghetto street brawler falls for a high priced courtesan (Kim Ok-Bin, THIRST) and winds up fighting for her affections with the local gang boss. Scored to a mix of hip hop and rock, edited by monkeys jacked up on crack, and featuring wall-to-wall nutso action, it's the kind of movie that has no pretensions: it's out to do nothing more than make your head explode.
