It includes 10 more minutes of footage and has had its rating changed from 15 to R. When he presents this evidence to the police, they suspect Byeong-soo himself is responsible.
Makimura remains a shallow character and he sometimes even seems cold. Although I won't say this has the same level of grit and deep emotional shock, the extent to which the film twists so much is comparable to the likes of Se7en and Gone Girl, so it's likely a film that you'll enjoy if you're a fan of those two from David Fincher. Anyway, Memoirs of a Murderer is the Japanese remake. Vielleicht etwas zu lang, aber dennoch durchgehend spannend und intensiv. Byeong-soo is subsequently arrested and incarcerated.
