I know that it's probably the best-known film of his now, but something about seeing Kim Ji-woon credited with merely The Last Stand is depressing. The dude gave us comedy-action-western funstravaganza The Good The Bad The Weird, as well as psychological horror A Tale of Two Sisters, poetic gangster piece A Bittersweet Life, and the deeply dark and blackly comedic thriller I Saw The Devil.

As a director, he's fantastic - even if in his only Western film he was held back by a studio's desire to make Arnie a comeback film in imitation of Sly.
