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

    'The Day He Arrives' and 'Oki's Movie' Are the Paragons of Hong Sang-Soo's Filmmaking

    "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. In one of many cases where art imitates life in a Hong movie, Seongjun's complaint reflects the general unfami...
