Country: SOUTH KOREA
Run Time: 134 minutes
Goldmoon has a death grip on South Korea. The organized crime syndicate is the most powerful in the country, but there’s just one problem: the boss is dead. His sudden demise sets off a cutthroat series of events within Goldmoon. This leads to a surprising window of opportunity for Ja-sung, an undercover cop who for the past eight years has been climbing the Goldmoon ranks to be the right hand man of the heir apparent. When the police finally decide to take action, Ja-sung is caught between his amassed power at Goldmoon and the now obscure police force. Set in a decadent South Korea where loyalty is the lynchpin between life and death, NEW WORLD is a gangster saga packed to the brim with raw performances, startling plot twists, and ample bloodletting. With ambitions of being South Korea’s response to “The Godfather,” NEW WORLD’s cops and gangsters turn urban pathways into blood-soaked slip-n-slides. (In Korean with subtitles) —C.P.
