King Lear is a famous story about a father betrayed by his daughters. After dividing his kingdom, Cordelia, Lear poses a question to his daughters. The king, after listening to their answers and feeling betrayed by the youngest one, kicked her out. Brook, who made Lord of the Flies and many other films, created a psychodrama through a absurd man. King Lear’s desire and confusion are clearly delivered in black and white, and his dispair and regrets are tightly followed. Frequent close-ups put King Lear on the focus of the plot effectively. The film focuses on the absurdity and regretfulness of a man. One of interesting approaches in the film is that Edmund, an antagonist, doesn’t appear. The film focuses on King Lear and presents a lonely and fragile human being through his monologue-like life. (LEE Sang-yong)
