I had seen some of his movies, every movies drag you towards his other movies to watch, such an artistic touch. Majority of his movies dialogues are around 20 minutes, but the way he had used the non-verbal language is forever hurts you. Kim-ki-duk is a real idiosyncratic or eccentricity movie maker. Once you watch his movie, you can tell his another movie as Kim's movie without seeing title card. His movies are not only shows the beauty, moreover it shows the ugly side of the beauty! He never cheat his own passion like other filmmakers, by giving place for some restrictions with external factors of film making.
The first movie i watched was "Spring, summer, fall, winter and spring", all about a Buddhist monk's life from childhood to old age through five seasons as five segments on a floating boat monastery. A life cycle from spring to spring with contemplative approach.
Another movie called "The Isle", a troublesome love among a prostitute and her customer on fishing resort. I say its an authentic aesthetics of cruelty. Consciously concerned with metaphysical approach.
Then "3-iron", another love story about a strange drifter and battered wife. What makes me wonder is there was no dialogues between these two till end of the movie.
Almost and always his protagonist speaks less or nothing, may be because in somehow or someway they're wounded deeply inside. An aesthetics of violence in silent way. Besides these things what really impress me in his movies is that he always making movies with some confrontation of questions among the audiences. Moreover he never wants economic success by killing artistic touch. Likewise i can write about his movies address unknown, Time, Bad guy and so...but what resists me is, the curiosity on his other movies in my collection!!
