Very good, excellent cinematography (Memories of a Murder fish eye wasn't needed)

Numerous "oh that's why"

With Decision to Leave, I've seen 10 of Park Chan-wook's films now, and he has yet to do me wrong. In fact, this murder mystery/romance is top tier for me. A man falls off a mountain, the police suspect foul play, his wife is investigated. But the detective is rather too entranced by this Chinese immigrant, and from there, as is usual in director Park's films, there's no telling where it's going to go, and I don't want to blow any surprises. Suffice it to say, the film looks gorgeous, and there's an especially interesting play between high and low places, mirroring the relative positions of the two main characters - a cop above all reproach and a woman whose hand may be bathed in blood. Park's visual tricks to show the detective and surveillance work are clever and lean into the theme of obsession at the heart of the romance portion of this tale, blurring the lines between the detective's compulsion to solve a crime, and his feelings for the suspect. A beautifully tragic crime picture.
