  • Make Yourself at Home (Fetish)

    2008. USA. Directed by Soopum Sohn. Written by Sohn, Margaret Monaghan. With Song Hye-kyo, Arno Frisch, Athena Currey. For his feature debut, New York–based Korean American filmmaker Sohn uses a cleverly scripted supernatural-thriller genre to explore themes of identity and the “Other.” During a brief visit to the “homeland,” Peter (an “Americanized” Korean) helps his mother in brokering his marriage to a Korean girl. When the girl, Sookhy, arrives at his home in upstate New York, she’s in for a culture clash. But Sookhy may not be as innocent as she seemed—she soon begins to assert herself not only at home but at a nearby couple’s house as well. The increasingly outlandish goings-on and the film’s eerie atmosphere of foreboding are balanced throughout by the story’s symbolic underpinnings. In English, Korean; English subtitles. 90 min.
