Memories of Murder (Salinui chueok) (2003)

Director: Joon-ho Bong. Cast: Kang-ho Song, Sang-kyung Kim, Roe-ha Kim. 132 min. Unrated. South Korea. Crime/Mystery.

On one hand, it's the real-life story of how the South Korea police force by the thousands couldn't capture a serial killer who raped/murdered up to ten women from 1986 to 1991, and without spoiling anything, was very similar to San Francisco's Zodiac killer. On the other, it's a cinematic presentation of how sure we are about the things know, how wrong we are about them, and how you make a two-hour plus movie, just to reach a single final shot of the protagonist, looking at the camera, looking at us, and the whole world suddenly comes crashing down.

PS: Thanks you, Ali S. This was probably the best recommendation you've ever made.
