Hae-guk (PARK Hae-il, ''War of the Arrows'') receives word that his estranged father has passed away, so he travels to the remote village where the older man lived to attend the funeral. However, when Hae-guk starts asking questions about his father's life - and unexplained death - the residents and their charismatic Chief (JUNG Jae-young, The Divine Weapon) exchange mysterious looks and seem anxious to rush him out of their village. Something isn't right, and Hae-guk is determined to uncover the truth...at any cost!

Although it is a very long film (over 2hr and 40 min), it kept me entertained and captivated through its immersive dialogue. I don't watch mystery films often, but this one kept me guessing until the end. It's not a complete mystery film though, it also has some dreadful suspense and thrills; he's often snooping around and you can't help but grip your seat or clench your fist as you fear for his safety. I really liked the way the film moves forward as he moves deeper and deeper into the mystery; the main villain has several henchmen and they help push the movie forward with some thrills/action. You really wonder: who killed his father? (whodunit?) Also, the whole mystery is effectively complimented by the atmospheric village setting. And the twist ending might even throw you off. It's a beautifully shot film, great direction, amazing acting (Jeong Jae-yeong did a great job as the evil village leader), and I enjoyed the music. Just remember, this film works mostly off its dialogue so be prepared since its very long.
Overall, I highly recommend Moss. It's a long film, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. South Korea delivers a dark, twisted thriller-mystery once again; I look forward to finding more of these gems. As of 8/9/12, Moss is available on Netflix Streaming, but a purchase is also highly recommend.
Moss has blood and violence, and sex.
