OLDBOY (2003, SOUTH KOREA)


My own personal March movie madness. My goal is make 31 posts in 31 days about 31 movies. They all must be non-U. S. films that I haven’t seen before. Why do I make this stipulation? Don’t know exactly, by we all have to have goals, don’t we?

Day six, from the Republic of Korea
Oldboy (2003)

The DVD cover of Oldboy gives it the Tarantino stamp of approval, and that’s what is reminds me of-a Korean version of a Tarantino movie. Wild plot twists, bizarre action scenes-quite a viewing experience.

  1. Intense and dark but also humorous and moving, this is an ambitious film that fulfils its promise, despite an arguably overly protracted denouement.

  2. A lot of "Oh My God!" moments in this one.
