INTERVIEW: DIRECTOR KIM HAN-MIN
Part I: “It’s technically very difficult getting a tiger into a film”
Within the month, War of the Arrows will pass the 7.4 million admissions mark, moving it out of the commercial blockbusters zone but still short of the sort of numbers racked up by the disaster phenomenon Haeundae (aka., Tidal Wave, 2009) and the 2008 sleeper comedy Scandal Makers (aka., Speed Scandal, Gwasokseukaendeul).

INTERVIEW: DIRECTOR KIM HAN-MIN
Part II: “It’s technically very difficult getting a tiger into a film”
Though little of this makes it into the final film, it is worth recalling the devastating impact of the Japanese invasions in the late sixteenth century.

March 2009 BFI Southbank Blade Runner Day
Joining Sammon onstage after the screening of Ridley’s Definitive Edition, Rutger Hauer lightened the mood of the event with his implacable L.A. charm and star quality, providing the kind of bigger, meatier, gutsier post-film Q&A that these B.F.I. events really thrive on; plus, he had every mischievous excuse in the book for revolting against procedure and interrupting Sammon to behave like the olympian prankster and sneak.
