in anticipation of the upcoming fantastic fest, this week's entry is for what i consider one of the real coups of the programming team this year, kim ki-young's the housemaid (1960).
you don't have to understand korean to get chills from that bit with the water glass. i cannot wait to see this tense and unpredictable little gem. fantastic fest runs at the alamo drafthouse on south lamar from 9.23.10 through 9.30.10. ifc is running a contest where you can enter to win two all-access passes to the festival and you can register for those here. i'll see you there.
