Now, this was a movie I liked.

To sum up Abnormal Beauty, it goes kind of like this... Girl is an artist, girl gets obsessed with death, girl goes crazy, girl gets normal again, girl recieves video tape of her roommate/sister/girlfriend whatever being brutally murdered, girl gets kidnapped, mom comes home. It's a bit more complicated than that, but it was mostly fun to watch.

As Jin, our main character, becomes more and more obsessed with capturing images of death on canvas and film, she begins to alienate those that she's closest to. As she goes from paying a man t kill chickens while watches to photographing a small girl committing suicide by jumping off a building, you watch Jin slip into a sort of madness. And by the time she's ready to give up the morbid aspect to her art, it's too late.
