Aro Recommended Attack the Gas Station


South Korea 1999, 110 minutes
Dir. Sang-Jin Kim
In Korean with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy, Cult / Black Comedy, Youth


Aroview: Four disaffected youths take hostage an entire gas station in this subversive, blackly-comic masterpiece from Korea.

Gleefully tearing apart the repression and sanctimony of Korean society, the four street punks find themselves interacting with every social stratum from petrol pump attendants to yuppies with their nihilistic behaviour. A critical and box-office smash in Korea, so we advise watching this before Hollywood decides to re-make and sanitise its well-directed barbs.
