Episode 102: Bong Joon-ho's 'Memories of Murder' (2003)
In this episode, I talk about Bong Joon-ho's 2003 film "Memories of Murder." It's based on the real-life Hwaseong serial murders that happened in a rural area of South Korea in the 1980s and early 1990s. At the time the film was released, the case was unsolved. However, shortly before recording my episode, major news broke that a suspect had been identified through DNA. I go into this new development and provide information on the original murders. Since the film is based on a true crime story, I discuss my own interest in true crime and focus on the way the film looks at abuses of power and violence against women. Finally, I talk in-depth about the ending. This episode contains spoilers. It also includes discussion of rape, violence, and dark subject matter.Consider making this podcast sustainable by supporting it on Patreon.Subscribe to the Her Head in Films Newsletter.Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.Original logo by Dhiyanah HassanFull show notes and sources"Number of women killed by homicide grew by 21 percent, says new study" (CBS News)"More than half of the women slain in 2017 were killed by family or parents, study says" (CBS News)"Police say they've identified a suspect in South Korean serial murder case" (CNN)"South Korea serial killer suspect found after 30 years, but won't face prosecution" (The Guardian)Korean Film Directors: Bong Joon-ho (edited by Jung Ji-youn)
Episode 101: Roberto Rossellini's 'Journey To Italy' (1954)
In this episode, I talk about Roberto Rossellini's groundbreaking 1954 film, "Journey To Italy." It stars Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders as Katherine and Alex Joyce, a couple whose relationship starts disintegrating during a vacation in Italy. Katherine is haunted by a man she knew before her marriage to Alex and who was stationed in Italy during World War II. As the distance grows between her and Alex, she visits museums that the man wrote about in his poetry. In her wanderings, she confronts death and the enormity of ancient history. "Journey To Italy" has haunted me for years. In this episode, I articulate why it's so compelling to me and discuss themes like time, history, mortality, death, and much more.

Episode 100: Vittorio De Sica's 'Umberto D.' (1952)
In this episode, I talk about Vittorio De Sica's classic 1952 Italian Neorealist film, "Umberto D." It's about an elderly man trying to evade eviction against the backdrop of post-World War II Italy. As his life becomes more precarious and desperate, he clings to his only companion, his dog Flike, and struggles to survive. I talk about Italian Neorealism, why this film moves me so much, and more. At the beginning of the episode, I also reflect on this being my 100th episode! I'm thankful for all my listeners. Consider making this podcast sustainable by supporting it on Patreon.
