Critics reviews

Hahaha sees romantic errors, flights of fancy, and social taboos as defining attributes for meals between friends and walks in the rain, small moments shared between characters yearning for relief from life’s little daggers. Despite the emotional battering each character takes, Hong always affords these sometimes pathetic men hope.

Beyond the simple documentary study of the geography, we understand the power of location, the way a specific place interacts with, partly determines, and certainly becomes a part of its inhabitants and its visitors lives, goals, and actions. The bifurcated storytelling that frames the film ultimately tells us less about our human characters, with their comical bumblings and momentary heartfelt declarations, and more about how human character is informed by its surroundings.

Hahaha mostly worked for me, thanks in part to what qualifies for him as a radical structural shift. Rather than the usual bifurcated narrative, in which the second half of the film repeats the first with slightly different characters and/or details, this new one gets all D.W. Griffith on our ass and actually intercuts two separate stories, which are being swapped by a couple of film-industry colleagues over what sounds like the contents of an entire liquor cabinet.
