Crime / 114 mins. / Korean / Nov. 4
Dong-gu is a natural at his job—a grave robber who can spot a priceless treasure merely by tasting the dirt. He teams up with fellow experts—Dr. Jones, who can decipher worthwhile ancient tomb murals from miles away, and Sapdari, who can dig like no other. No one can beat the trio when it comes to robbing graves.
Elite curator Yoon, an expert on ancient artifacts, recognizes Dong-gu’s talent and proposes a deal that he can’t refuse—but it’s also dangerous and risky. She proposes that the trio sneak underneath the royal tombs from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) in Seolleung, Gangnam District in southern Seoul, the busiest part of the Korean capital.
Actors Lee Je-hoon, Jo Woo-jin, Lim Won-hee and Shin Hae-sun portray Dong-gu, Dr. Jones, Sapdari and curator Yoon.
Deliver Us From Evil Final Cut (19)
Action / 114 mins. / Korean / Oct. 28
Six minutes and 14 seconds longer than the original film, the “final cut” version of "Deliver Us From Evil" includes unedited scenes of the hit film which was the most-watched film at the local box office this summer, even surpassing Cannes-invited director Yeon Sang-ho’s “Peninsula.” The cumulative ticket sales tally over 4.3 million, a feat considering how empty the cinemas have been due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The film marks the reunion of actors Hwang Jung-min and Lee Jung-jae since they last appeared together in the acclaimed film noir "New World" in 2013.
In-nam (played by Hwang) is a hit man who finished his last mission and hopes to spend the rest of his life in peace and seclusion.
But his last target turns out to be an older brother of a merciless butcher Ray (played by Lee), who vows to avenge his sibling by taking In-nam’s life.
When In-nam’s past lover tries to reach out to him from Thailand, he instinctively realizes that something is wrong. He discovers a daughter that he’d never known to have existed had been kidnapped by traffickers. With fierce determination, he tries to track down his daughter. And in hot pursuit is Ray, who is poised to kill.
