Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #152. Kim Jee-woon’s Cobweb


Known for A Tale of Two Sisters (2003), Cannes preemed A Bittersweet Life (2005) and The Good, The Bad, The Weird (2008), and his what might be the best film in his filmography in I Saw The Devil (2010), Kim Jee-woon moved into bigger budgeted items in the decade to follow and we now find ourselves with a film within a film template (penned by Shin Yeon-shick) in Cobweb (also going by the title of “The Spider House”). The South Korean filmmaker began production in early May for a lengthy three month period with the likes of everyone’s favorite in Song Kang-ho (who reunites with the director for a third time), Im Soo Jung, Oh Jung Se, Jeon Yeo-been and Krystal Jung.

Gist: This is about a director Kim (Song Kang-ho), who is obsessed with the fact that the ending of the movie ‘Cobweb’, which was filmed in the 1970s, will be better if re-filmed.

Release Date/Prediction: We see the filmmaker returning to the Out of Competition slot for a third time.
