I just happened to see the review this afternoon. Since I've liked all of the increasing number of Korean films I've been able to see over the past several months, MASQUERADE sounded intriguing enough (even if it sounds mainly like a Korean variation on KAGEMUSHA) that I stopped by Best Buy on the way home and bought a copy.

It will be a couple of weeks before I get time to watch it, unfortunately. If it reinterprets KAGEMUSHA from a Korean perspective as well as THE MAN FROM NOWHERE reworked LEON THE PROFESSIONAL into a distinctively Korean identity, I'll be satisfied. Some great films coming out of Korea the past few years!

Probably getting the Korean disc instead since they dropped the ball on lossless audio

The Korean release is nice, but at more than $40 (on YesAsia) expensive. I got the U.S. disc recently from Best for only $9.99.

Very good movie. I believe it's still on Netflix if anyone wants to sample it first.
