Cinematheque 5/17-19: The Uninvited, Le Havre, The Yellow Sea & more!

Surf waves of action and violence in epic South Korean thriller THE YELLOW SEA!

Na Hong-jin, the South Korean director of THE CHASER, returns with another nerve-wracking, stomach-churning action epic! THE YELLOW SEA tells of a debt-ridden Korean-Chinese taxi driver who goes to Seoul to bump off a gangster and also look for his absent wife, who moved there to find work. But a chain of unexpected events sends him running for his own life. At last year’s Cannes Film Festival THE YELLOW SEA whipped the audience into a laughing, clapping frenzy — thanks largely to its thrilling, virtuosic chase sequences! Variety calls the movie “pulse-pounding, mordantly funny” but adds that it is “serious and full-bodied enough to achieve a genuinely tragic dimension.” Fasten your seatbelts on Friday or Saturday when we premiere it in a 35mm color & scope print!
