Featured reviews for

A Dirty Carnival
Variety.com, review by Derek Elley source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117931366.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«The best Korean gangster movie since "Friend," "A Dirty Carnival" elevates the genre to an epic narrative level as it follows the rise and emotional decline of a smalltime hoodlum. Full of swiftly etched, well-developed characters and peppered with taut action sequences, pic has the kind of long-reaching dramatic span more often seen in regular dramas.»
IGN, "First Look Review: Korean goodfellas" by Scott Collura source: http://movies.ign.com/articles/786/786638p1.html
«Ultimately, A Dirty Carnival is just that, a circus of Shakespearean themes about the rise and fall of not just one man who tried to get ahead in life, but also how his successes and failures affected -- and afflicted -- all those around him.»
BeyondHollywood, by James Mudge source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/a-dirty-carnival-2006-movie-review/
«Such lofty aims aside, “A Dirty Carnival” is on more basic terms a gripping and thrilling drama that features plenty in the way of stabbings, mass brawls and corpses being buried in the woods at night.»
Korean Movie Reviews for 2006, by Kyu Hyun Kim source: http://www.koreanfilm.org/kfilm06.html#dirtycarnival
«A Dirty Carnival illustrates what a gutsy and sensible filmmaker Yu Ha is, firmly reining in the film's narrative drive and not seduced by stylistic razzle-dazzle.»
Linapark6 review source: http://lunapark6.com/a-dirty-carnival.html
«A Dirty Carnival is a gritty gangster movie, that attempts to offer one of the more realistic portrayals of the mafia in Korea. It will likely appeal to action fans that crave a gritty, realistic mafia movie that provides more than its shares of brutal fight sequences. Although the film is long, it never felt slow and was, mostly, compelling throughout its runtime.»
