...I n the meantime, he likes to remind me that one of his favorite directors is an Italian, Federico Fellini. "Fellini had an exceptional sense of humor. His analysis of the world seen through his eyes is simply brilliant and tragic because it's humorous. He really knew all about human nature. But I also love W C Fields, especially his masterpiece from 1932, The Dentist , which I think is the most pornographic film ever made. I don't like political films, and I don't like to be indoctrinated by other people's ideas. I prefer following my own path and making my own choices. The documentary maker that I respect less is Michael Moore. I don't consider him a film director but an extraordinary propagandist. All of his films just talk about him." As Samuel Goldwyn used to say: "If you have a message, send a telegram."
"I arrived in Europe because I wanted to flee from Korean society and my home," he says. " My father is a Korean War veteran. He endured psychological and physical torture in North Korea. He was able to return home, with four bullets in his body, but only after a prisoner swap. But he was not the same person: he was pervaded by a sense of defeat and he vented his extraordinary anger on me every day . I was terrified by my father, but as I grew up I realized that he was just another victim of society. South Korea still suffers from the consequences of that war, but no one wants to talk about it. This is why I decided to make films focusing on these themes: violence, hate, trauma, solitude, and the inability to communicate. I personally experienced these situations, but so has my country ."
AB: "Constraints are part of life , I don’t really like thinking about them, but if I had none I would start a colony on an island in the same spirit of a John Davenport or William Penn"
