Moebius (2013)

Option 1Option 2

Avg Rating: 4.3 / 5. Voted: 60

No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Kim Ki-duk
Starring: Seo Young-ju (Son), Cho Jae-hyun (Father), Lee Eun-woo (Mother/Girlfriend), Kim Jae-hong (Gang leader)
Country: South Korea
Language:
Runtime: 01:24:37
Genres: Family, Infidelity, Revenge, Misc Paraphilias, Sexual-Violence against Men, Rape-Sexual-Violence against Women, Self-Harm, Incest, Old-Young Relationships, Teenager

Plot – Spoilers:
Dad is cheating. Mom is drunk-crazy over this. Son detachedly watches parents fight. Then Mom chops off son’s dick after seeing him masturbating. And swallows it to ensure irreparable damage. That’s just the first few minutes of Moebius where Mom and (cheating) girlfriend are played by the same actress.

Moebius is glorious effedup art. The violence is not explicit and yet, the one kink that’s explicitly depicted is almost certain to unnerve proud men and women who smirk or laugh at the goriest violence. The film also contains one of the most hilariously bizarre, menage-a-trois sex moments.

Random:
Director Kim Ki-duk died of Covid a few days back.

Great film – the mum was as mad as a box of frogs (though strangely hot) and I didn’t realise there was no dialogue at all (though I don’t know this director so perhaps it’s their style?) – it didn’t diminish from the film at all though – enjoyed this one 🙂

This movie is mad-crazy! Kim Ki-Duk took ‘effedup’ to a whole different level! It has been a great honor watching his bizarre artistic film. R.I.P. Once again thank you EUM for sharing one of his great work. Salute!

Unique films like “Moebius” is what makes this site so special and one-of-a-kind. I am not Korean but I enjoyed watching this film, even if there is very little or no dialogue. Man, I love this website!

South Korea has an enviable movie industry with loads of good films.

This one unfortunately is not one of them IMHO.

Not to take away from those who enjoy it.

Sorry for what happened to you. I got it both genders four times. I can empathize. One of the biggest things that has helped me heal is to plunge headlong into content that has this subject matter. Shit, I have intentionally had fantasies about my perpetrators! One of my methods of desensitization. I see it this way; What they did to me happed four times but what I can make them do for my benefit in my sexual fantasies… Making them do what I WANT…That lasts forever! They have to answer to ME
E now! Now I get the benefit of their non consensual involvement in my life every time I fuck my Wife or jerk off or whatever. That’s my catharsis. I won’t presume to tell you how to deal with your own sexual PTSD but I can say that this method works for me. I wish you the best Spitonbaby.

I too enjoyed this thoroughly…. The lack of dialogue made it even better. . .
Not sure of the moral angle except everything revolves around the penis and I’d guess praying and paying respect to the Buddha statue.

The gang scenes were jokingly menacing bit the dad.. the anti hero.. well we’ve all been there haven’t we ??

those tits were so fake, a lot better ones in Japanese porno, Surprising since Korean plastic surgeons work miracle on Kpop star faces, but their boob jobs looks too fake.

All the little wankers on here who don’t get laid think the breasts are nice, lmfao! They were on the petite side, I found her largish nipples and areolas too dark in colour, unappealing.

I read few articles about this movie to figure out the buddism message hidden in it. Nicely done. Its hard for Western mind to understand it, however Kim didn’t waste time to tell viewers that this is not a movie for everyone.

This is my first Korean film and I gotta say even though there was no dialogue, it certainly made its intentions clear. If it wasnt so serious , it would have been funny. Well it was funny in parts,but also confronting, sad and sensual in a way. I enjoyed it for its simplicity and mindfuckery, and can I add, that those Korean chicks are quite hot imo. I would recommend this film for lovers of the bizarre. Cheers to EUM for showing it. You guys are awesome.

At first thank u very much for running this amazing site guys ! Really enjoyed watching this masterpiece of cruelty and brutality ! Without any dialogue Kim Ki-Duk reached saying more in this strip than other directors in their entire career. High loss for the world that he died… R.I.P.

I really liked this film. Korea has definetly carved out a solid place for niche movies like this. Thanks again EUM.

Korean reinvention of rock, paper, scissors to rock, dick, knife. Korea has been making some of the best films in the last 20 years (imo) and this film is unique. Its testament to the director and the actors that this film without dialogue not only conveys the story but also draws you in. There is also the bonus that the mother/mistress is hot. A very solid 4/5 rocks.

I was a bit concerned when it got to the stone rubbing that the film was going to loose its narative but it cums together very well. As for the ladies tits I got the impression that both of them had the same surgeon (albeit a very good one they were a tad too pneumatic for my taste).

Same tits as the same actress played the mother and mistress.

You need to watch it again… It’s beautifully noir and melancholic. It was never going to “lose its narrative”… Pneumatic isn’t a word I would associate with breasts or this film 🙂

Aldous Huxley would disagree:
Quote from Brave new World:
“Lenina Crowne?” said Henry Foster, echoing the Assistant Predestinator’s question as he zipped up his trousers. “Oh, she’s a splendid girl. Wonderfully pneumatic. I’m surprised you haven’t had her.”

He delicately referred to her vitality and decorum as such. Not her anatomy 🙂

Disconsolately cerebral, profoundly visceral. Pensively phrenic and coercive, exquisitely directed, and eloquently elucidates the fragility of neurosis. Dialogue should never be imperiously required for such ingenuity, it’s affectable and effectual.
