Oldboy 2003


description written by member Zara:

With no clue how he came to be imprisoned, drugged and tortured for 15 years -- and no one to hold accountable for his suffering -- a desperate businessman seeks revenge on his captors, relying on assistance from a friendly waitress. Korean director Chan Wook Park -- a former philosophy student and Hitchcock devotee -- uses his influences to create a mesmerizing psychological drama with a resolution that will leave you speechless.

After watching The Dentist and this film, I don't think anyone is going to be touching my teeth again.

Dae-su Oh (Min-sik Choi) is imprisoned for 15 years and has no idea why. When he gets out, he starts trying to find the answers, and that is when the violence gets started.

But in a Hitchcockian ending the answer was...

Oldboy Movie Review by Jarrod (7/12/2007)

Oldboy Movie Review by Misty (4/26/2007)

Literally.

However, I really enjoyed it. I used to hate that thing where they translate a movie from another language into English and their lips don't say the same things that you're hearing, but this film was good enough that it didn't bother me at all.

I was turned on to it by a new friend and I'm was excited to see...

Oldboy Movie Review by Ezra (2/13/2007)

I've been raving about this one since I first saw it in late 2004; in fact, I originally included it in my Top Ten of that year, but I was so happy to see it get a US theatrical release this year that I decided to rave all over again.

See OLDBOY.


I know that logic states I should not be divulging that information so early on in a review, negating your need to bathe in the incoherent ramblings that my examinations carry with them, but I did it anyway. Why you may ask? First, I'm crazy like that. But more importantly, while this latest Asian film to...
