The Late Show!

(2017) dir Byung-gil Jung w/Ok-bin Kim, Ha-kyun Shin, Jun Sung, Seo-hyeong Kim [129 min; Digital]
“Channeling La femme Nikita, Kill Bill, Nikkatsu’s ’70s female exploitation films, and a gazillion Hong Kong martial arts heroines, THE VILLAINESS nonetheless succeeds in being one-of-a-kind for its delirious action choreography and overall narrative dementia.” – Variety

“Jung shreds a simple story and then weaves the pieces into an intricate tapestry of flashbacks and pure-action scenes, with the individual strands often sewn together by pictorial rhymes.” Mark Jenkins, NPR

“Ping-ponging from gonzo action to domestic drama to spy thriller and culminating in an electrifying showdown aboard a speeding bus, The Villainess delivers all the overstuffed thrills we’ve come to expect from Korean action cinema.” – Katie Rife, AV Club
