Name one Korean film maker whose photography is better than Koreeda
Oh yeah, Kim Ki Duk, you got me there. Except he's arbitrarily disqualified from being Korean. Lolz

Not necessarily comedy, but funny.
I thought it would crack the unsolved (??) mystery of the serial killer).
Tomokawa is a tough guy turned bored cop who spends much of his time sating lonely housewives and looking after retarded teen Sukemasa. One day while hanging out at a bar, he is approached by a 15-year-old enjo kosai named Yoko, offering a round of illicit sex in exchange for cash. Though he demurs, their paths cross again and soon a relationship of sorts forms. Yoko, it turns out, is Sukemasa's sister; and both are the children of his old flame Yukie, a grasping, self-centered woman. Moreover, Yoko's grandfather is responsible for the massive tattoo sprawling across Tomokawa's back. Tomokawa soon takes both teens under his wing, protecting them from their heartless mother, and their lecherous stepfather. Soon, Yoko gets a similarly massive tattoo illustrating her bond with her policeman savior.
I was trying to depict ... Ryotaâs eventual understanding, and how he learned from the nurseâs new family situation. As to whether that might develop into forgiveness, thatâs hard to say.
He didn't say "give me that look". More like, "I know what I want the film to look like and 'this was a look that he could create'."
the film reached utopian levels
His visuals aren't the conventional type. But the visuals talk.
Itâs so frigginâ stupid, with atrocious dialogue and even worse acting.
Man, Alice In Earnestland is pretty polarizing. Has been on my watchlist but not sure whether it's for me.
