    This is wild.

    I've never been too high on Park's work. I like Stoker and I'm A Cyborg, Thirst is ok, and I didn't even bother watching Lady Vengeance after the first two films in the trilogy. But I really loved this. It's visually stunning and loaded with well executed twists. Cannes competition is loaded with winners this year.

    Don't think I've seen any of his stuff outside of Oldboy, but this looks really good. Hoping to see it soon.

    I'm a Cyborg is a weird mix of Wes Anderson, Tarantino and sci-fi. Totally worth looking into.

    LOVED THIS. I seriously felt every single emotion throughout. I learned a lot about the origins of hentai. Haha

    This was something else, so good. I'm by no means a prude but was definitely taken back by how far they went, haha.

    I prefer Oldboy or Stoker, but this was very good. Still need to check out his other films.

    This is far and away his best work imo.

    Always do the right thing. Prestigious

    Agreed. The more I read on Japanese colonialism in Korea, the stronger it is.

    There's an extended cut from Korea floating around. 23 minutes longer.
