The Chaser - Chugyeogja (2008)

The south korean crime thriller The Chaser has often been compared to the likes of David Fincher's "Se7en". While at times it does remind us of Se7en, the treat here is a bit different. The Chaser's directing is undeniably very good. Photography and filming are a feast to the eyes. Plus, The Chaser doesn't forget to make itself believable: details like the main character running and slipping on the floor while chasing a suspect getting up instantly will make you interested on the uncertainty of that chase's outcome, as of the plot's outcome. And that is only an example. However, this is also The Chaser's flaw. While trying to be realistic, there are periods where the movie stalls, ruining the pace with more details, inconsequent characters are introduced, and one or two plot holes give themselves up. The Chaser is a quality crime thriller, even if it builds up too much expectations to end up flattening them.
