Oldboy

Viewed: 22 May 2010
Directed by:
Listed in: ,

A bizarre, visually arresting film. Grim and dimly lit, Old Boy is highly stylized, the hammer in the hallway scene a triumph of choreography and composition. Overall it is intensely striking. For the first two thirds it play as a mystery-revenge story. Dae-su yearns for vengeance and fights towards his captor. And its mostly coherent. When the truth is revealed, the plot turns bizarre and preposterous. It ends so weird and confounding that it's hard to measure the film as a whole.
