Memories of Murder (2003, MA 15+)

In 1986, two village detectives receive unasked for support from a slick Seoul detective, as the three struggle against outmoded methodologies and technology to try capture what could be South Korea’s first documented serial killer. Based off an actual series of events—the Hwaseong serial murders—Memories of Murder is both attune to the messiness of real-life crime and attentive to procedure, becoming widely recognised as one of South Korea’s greatest films.
