Each film in this collection serves as a searing analysis of the state's impact on the individual and Korea's turbulent modern history.In Lee's sophomore film, Peppermint Candy (1999), a man is haunted by his past decisions, set against the backdrop of South Korea's economic boom. Driven by harrowing melancholy, Lee's scathing critique of Korea's institutional impact on a generation of Korean men is deftly executed through a unique approach reverse chronology storytelling, and accelerated Lee from novelist to international art film sensation. In Lee's next film, Oasis (2002), the genre convention of melodrama is flipped with stylistic realism and harsh social critiques as an unlikely romance forms between a social misfit and a young disabled woman, both abused by the families.
