Images about imagery can be diverting, even insightful, but this painterly 1999 feature piles up studies in elaborately choreographed motion that are their own reason for being. An Inchon detective obsessed with bringing a fugitive to justice is one of the elements writer-director Lee Myung-se uses to take apart film noir so he can put it back together again. Other elements include a pointillist use of rain and snow, sound effects that compare an archetypal detective's bullets to his typewriter keys, and a femme who isn't exactly fatale. With Park Joong-hoon, Ahn Sung-ki, Jang Dong-kun, and Choi Ji-woo.
