Film info

Director: Woo Min-ho
Cast: Lee Byung-hun, Cho Seung-woo, Baek Yoon-sik
180mins, 2015

Korea’s commercial filmmakers have been turning their cameras on the country’s corrupt elite of late, yet few films have been as aggressively entertaining as Woo Min-ho’s Inside Men. Lee Byung-hun features as an effective political fixer who is betrayed by his mentor, the editor of an influential newspaper, who is pulling strings to get a corporation backed congressman elected as president. Minus one hand, the fixer returns with an elaborate revenge plan, launching himself into a debauched and sanguinary trail to the highest office in the land. Lee shines in this slick and savage takedown of Korea’s amoral ruling class. LKFF will be screening the director’s cut of the film, which added two million viewers to Inside Men’s original run.
