Night in Paradise – A must see on Netflix

I love discovering cool new foreign movies to watch and it’s been a while since I found a good one to recommend. My long overdue discovery is well rewarded with this new Korean gangster flick that’s filled with all the signature of a great Asian gangster movie like good story line, perfect pacing, pulse-pounding car chases, and holds-no-bars fight scenes. The movie has some tender moments in between its brutal but well-choreographed fight scenes. If you are along for the ride, you will be richly rewarded with its jaw-dropping final conclusion. Know this, all the scenes from the beginning, through its quiet, idyllic moments, are building up to its explosive finale. The cinematography to this movie is an example of top notch color-grading and visual poetry, which make the shocking conclusion that much more heart-wrenching to watch.
