Legend in the Mountain

The second film he filmed in Korea was "Raining in the Mountain." This, honestly, is his most bizarre, different but unique film he has ever made. This is a straight up ghost story. No fights, no long exposition in the beginning. Long sequences of walking, talking, fog, and falling in love.

These types of moves may seem troublesome, but I argue that a mark of a good director is one that can jump into any genre and be great at it.

Let's play a game: Here are two movies, name its director.

1. Trainspotting.
2. Slumdog Millionaire.

Answer: Danny Boyle

Here's another one:

1. The Hulk
2. Brokeback Mountain

Answer: Ang Lee

Last one:

1. Casino
2. Hugo

Answer: Martin Scorsese
