Watch: Filmmaker Kim Jee-Woon Discusses His Vision for 'Dr. Brain'
"I think the director's thoughts, feelings, colors, and smells exist in every scene." There's a new "Director's Vision" featurette out for their sci-fi thriller series Dr. Brain, which is already playing now on Apple TV+. It spends time with acclaimed Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon (best known for his films A Tale of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life, The Good the Bad the Weird, I Saw the Devil, The Age of Shadows) discussing working on this. Dr. Brain is an emotional journey following a brain scientist who's obsessive about figuring out new technologies to access the consciousness and memories of the brain. His life goes sideways when his family falls victim to a mysterious accident, and he uses his skills to access memories from his wife's brain to piece together the mystery of what actually happened to his family and why. The series stars Lee Sun-kyun, Lee You-young, Park Hee-soon, Seo Ji-hye, & Lee Jae-won. I'm already a big fan of Kim Jee-woon and excited to hear him talk about filmmaking, along with some on-set footage from this. Take a look.
