4. A Taxi Driver
Based on the true story of the Gwangju Uprising, the 2017 South Korean action film follows the story of a taxi driver named Man-seob (played by Song Kang-ho) who is struggling to make ends meet in Seoul.
One day, he is approached by a German journalist named Peter (played by Thomas Kretschmann), who is looking to travel to the city of Gwangju to cover the student protests that are taking place there.
Upon arriving in the city, the duo witness the brutal crackdown by the military on the protesters, which then leads to a violent confrontation between the citizens and the army.
How Man-seob and Peter navigate the chaos and violence of the city while witnessing the atrocities committed by the military will form the plot for the rest of the film.
