Not based on Connie Willis' seminal sci-fi novel of the same name, Doomsday Book
is preoccupied not with time travel, but the world's end. Telling three
separate stories, the Korean film comes from acclaimed directors Kim
Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil
) and Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel
). As with all anthologies, results vary; ultimately, this one ends up as two-thirds great.
