Yong-Hoon Kim’s ‘Beasts Clawing At Straws’ Is Playing Now In Select Cinemas

Now playing at select theaters is a new crime thriller from Korean director Yong-Hoon Kim called Beasts Clawing at Straws. The film stars Do-yeon Jeon (The Shameless), Woo-sung Jung (Steel Rain), Sung-Woo Bae (Office), and Man-sik Jeong (The Yellow Sea).


A Luis Vuitton bag stuffed full of cash sends a group of hard-luck lowlifes on a desperate chase for the fortune in this pitch-black neo-noir crime thriller. Fish-mongering gangsters, a greasy cop, an “innocent” gym cleaner, a prostitute, her wife beater of a husband, her ruthless boss and her clueless boyfriend all violently scheme to get their hands on elusive the bag. First time director Kim Yong-hoon’s witty thriller is a beautifully constructed puzzle that with each double-cross, the pieces fall into place.
