Korean Film Festival: Nameless Gangster: Rules of the Time (범죄와의 전쟁)

  • Apr 5, 2013 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Choi Min-sik’s master-class performance drives this gangland epic set in and around the port city of Busan in the 1980s and 1990s. He plays Ik-hyun, a corrupt customs inspector who stumbles upon a wayward drug shipment and leverages it into a business partnership with the city’s biggest crime boss. Soon their power struggle and a government crackdown on organized crime threaten to blow the lid off their increasingly grandiose plans. By turns obsequious and threatening, Choi’s Ik-hyun “emerges as a bravura study in survival instinct” (Maggie Lee, Variety), while director Yoon Jong-bin (Unforgiven; Beastie Boys) navigates the plot’s complex, overlapping chronology with a deft hand. The 1980s vibe is fully embraced with atrocious period haircuts and clothes and a soundtrack of classic K Pop. (Dir.: Yoon Jong-bin, 2012, 133 min., Korean with English subtitles, D-Cinema)
