The Chaser

Released 2008
Distributor IFC Films

Kim Yoon-suk plays a former policeman turned pimp in this South Korean thriller directed by Na Hong-jin. Yoon-suk’s stable of call girls is dying at the hands of a psycho-killer and he relies on his detective skills to track down the maniac. The film itself has a maniacal energy—it isn’t called The Chaser for nothing—and the movie’s headlong action sequences were rewarded by several festival awards including Cannes’ Best New Director.
