Memories of Murder - Blu-ray and theatrical re-release

Not much to go on, but in a recent article:

Neon recently bought the rights to “Memories of Murder,” one of Bong’s early works, and plans to re-release it in theaters and on Blu-ray.

Yes!!!!! I bought the digital version awhile back on Amazon Prime. There's a French release, too, but no English subtitles and the color palette, I think, was screwed around with.

This is great news. One of my favorite Bongs movies.

Wow. I have the Korean BD from a few years ago (it's English friendly). It's a phenomenal film and considering the recent developments of the story it is even more poignant. I hope more folks discover his early filmography.

Re: Memories of Murder - Blu-ray and theatrical re-release

At this point his filmography could really be well served by a decently-appointed box set. I know Magnolia released a DVD set in 2010 with BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE (which is still a phenomenal debut feature by any measure), THE HOST and MOTHER, but it would be nice to see something more completist on Blu-ray, and with additional supplements that benefit from the hindsight we now have, both about Bong's style and Korean cinema and culture in general. There would undoubtedly be licensing issues, but surely the parties involved might see some value in such an overview.

Hopefully this new MEMORIES Blu-ray will include a documentary updating the real life case, since those recent developments mentioned above (some as recent as a week ago!) were staggering.

I wish more Korean crime dramas/thrillers got released over here. They're some of the best around.
