Beasts Clawing At Straws

Directed by Kim Yong-hoon | 2020 | 108 minutes | Not Rated | South Korea | Korean

Kino Lorber presents Beasts Clawing At Straws, which is now available via streaming

Coming from first time director Kim Yong-hoon, this witty crime thriller is a masterfully constructed puzzle where with each double-cross, more and more of the pieces fall into place. 

A Luis Vuitton bag stuffed full of cash sends a group of eight hard-luck lowlifes on a desperate chase for the fortune in this pitch-black neo-noir crime thriller. Fish-mongering gangsters, a greasy cop, an “innocent” gym cleaner, a young prostitute, her wife beater of a husband, her ruthless boss and her clueless boyfriend all violently scheme to get their hands on the elusive bag.

Within its cast, it stars Jung Woo-sung from Asura: City of Madness and Jeon Do-yeon, award winner in Cannes for her lead role in Secret Sunshine, in addition many others!
