Review

is a suggestive title. ´Goliath´ is a metaphor for a gigantic force or an authority. But in this documentary dealing with the strikes opposing the demolition of the Poong Dong area, ´Goliath´ is the name of a secret hiding place for the strikers. The title also suggests the tight knit symbiotic structure that consists of law, institution, capital, and gangsters: a capitalist structure that only has profit in mind. This documentary satisfies the demand of verite style that one must be able to capture the very spot in which the events happen. The camera takes us to where the demolition is taking place. And the voices of those who are losing their homes give these images a sense of urgency. But this is a documentary that doesn´t stay complacent with its politically correct theme. What makes this documentary truly persuasive is its aesthetic value. The audience gets to see ruins of the demolished area and the newly built apartments side by side inside a single frame. We see how the ´Goliath´ takes shape as the struggle continues. And while the documentary juggles with different time lines, it never loses it sense of urgency.
