    Hi Michael,

    I saw JSA a few years back when I was exploring Korean films. We had a now-defunct channel on our cable called AZN TV. They often featured Korean films – which were usually great and Korean soap operas – which were ridiculous but fun. One of the films we saw on AZN was ‘Three Iron’ which I believe is called something like ‘Empty Houses’ in Korean. Very interesting. I also recommend the film ‘The Brotherhood of War’ (Tae Guk Ki in Korean) – excellent.

    Also, I have moved my blog over to WordPress and would be honored if you would follow it: My first new post there is a ‘The Last 10 Films I’ve Seen’ which I totally confess to stealing from you as well as giving a recommendation that everyone check out White City Cinema.

      It’s funny you should mention 3-Iron. I just showed JSA in a class focusing on S. Korean cinema and I’ll be showing 3-Iron soon in the very same class.
      Thanks for the shout out on your new blog. I’m now following it.

    Michael, I’ve been looking for a DVD to rent of “Deep Cover” for some time now…how did you manage to see it?

    • michaelgloversmith

      Scott, I rented Deep Cover from netflix in order to show it in a “World of Cinema” class at Harold Washington College (the subject was neo-noir) but you can buy used copies on amazon for less than $2. It’s a great movie and worth a blind buy.
