    Review: 'Goodbye First Love' Looks At Young Romance Without Affection

    Television and movies love to indulge us in pre-adulthood nostalgia. Whether the bait is loose (young hooligans causing a ruckus) or more specific and event-oriented (prom, which we've seen less of lately because, well, prom sucks), the powers that be tug at our heartstrings and force us to look...

    "Not many people have seen my films," says the impulsive filmmaker at the center of "The Day He Arrives," the characteristically rambling character study from Korean director Hong Sang-soo.
