“Son Kwang-Ju’s two films [The Third Tongue & Punk Eek] are superb provocations, pushing radical film-making into new, post-Godardian directions.” – Tony Rayns, Film Critic

In Punk Eek (2004), reality and the view of reality are always blurring….After Jae-Won has finally found the answer to the film’s original question, the ‘reflexive mechanism’ (Niklas Luhmann) ultimately plunges him into a deep crisis.” – Florian Waldvogel
