6:30pm Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors (126m) 
An early experiment in bifurcation and repetition, Hong’s third feature anticipates much of his later work while also enduring as one of his most visually ambitious and formally audacious films. A filmmaker (Moon Seung-kun) introduces his friend, a well-to-do gallerist (Jeong Bo-seok), to another friend, a television writer (the late, great Lee Eun-ju), unwittingly setting the stage for the type of psychodramatic love triangle that’s squarely within director Hong’s wheelhouse. But then, just as the story seems to end, it begins all over again, with new details foregrounded, others changed or removed… In short, Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors is a consummately Hongian investigation into the vagaries of the heart.

8:45pm Like You Know It All (126m)
Something like a dose of mortification and misadventure, Like You Know It All follows a hapless movie director invited to serve on a film-festival jury. True to the title (drawn from Hong’s customarily candid dialogue), the young filmmaker jousts with friends old and new in a tragicomic examination of self-absorption, wayward sexual impulses, and all manner of misbehavior. Amidst the soju-fueled blackouts, inappropriate confessions, and ill-advised sallies across the gender divide, Like You Know It All coheres into yet another complex, surprising, and moving work.
