Episode 25: The Housemaid(s)

안녕하세요!  VCinema is donating $1 to the Japan Society of New York’s quake relief fund* for each download of this episode between 03/14/11 and 03/28/11.  If you wish to make a individual donation to their fund, then please read this.

Welcome to episode 25, recorded especially for the Korean Cinema Blogathon 2011!  In this special episode (aren’t they all special, though?!), Adam Hartzell from koreanfilm.org, the longest running English-language resource on Korean film, joins our review panel to discuss Kim Ki-Young’s The Housemaid (1960)- AVAILABLE FOR FREE VIEWING ON MUBI.COM (you’ll get the joke once you’ve listened to this episode…) as well as Im Sang-Soo’s 2010 reimagining.  We also diss on Park Chan-wook yet again, give our picks of films to watch this episode, and make a general nuisance of ourselves (as usual).  Enjoy!

*Since donations will come from our own personal funds which are quite meager, we are only able to donate a maximum of $700 (editor’s note: co-host Rufus has upped the maximum by $200).  Also, donated funds will not be used for personal tax-deduction purposes and may be distributed to the Japan Society in installments.  Questions and concerns can be sent to vcinema@variedcelluloid.net
