    Me gustó la cinematografía, fotografía, como se llame. Me recordó un poquito a Fincher y a Tarantino.

    This falls amongst the movies that I am not sure I enjoy watching, but are fascinating enough that there is never a desire to turn away. Yet, I'm sure I will watch it again. I also wish I had seen this years ago when I first heard about it, since it would have been a spectacular introduction to the entertaining world of the non-70s kung fu movies from the Asian countries, which are so much more readily accessible in the…

    No words. Absolutely mind-bogglingly awesome. In the final act, I was unconsciously contorting myself on the sofa out of sheer awe and despair.

    Review on this utter masterpiece to come

    I have been meaning to review this one for a while but never did but now that I have finally seen the remake I figured that now was as good a time to do so as any.

    In Oldboy a man named Dae-Su is kidnapped and imprisoned in a room for 15 years. After finally being released he goes on a violent journey to find the man who had him imprisoned and why.

    I didn't know what I would think…

    The depth and intensity of how disturbing this tale of revenge and retribution is makes for a perfectly balanced movie. Unbelievable acting and kick ass fight scenes are seen throughout the film. Really a must see.

    One of my favourite films. A true character study on what it means to be out for revenge. The storytelling is visceral and the suspense is brutal. Min-sik Choi gives a stunning lead performance that will evoke many emotional responses from the viewer.

    Oldboy is a film that I believe is still widely unappreciated in the west. However, the 2013 US remake was not the answer to this problem and has ultimately soured the story for a lot of people. If you have the choice, absolutely watch this version before the 2013 version.

    OLDBOY. What a twisted film. Oldboy questions the role that revenge and vengeance have to play in our lives, and displays how powerful these forces can be. I just finished this film, and am still awestruck at the powerful finish. Did Dae-su and Mi-do end up together?! In reality that is so fucked up, but we as viewers have been rooting for them throughout the film, so shouldn't they deserve happiness?? Thought-provoking thriller, awesome.

    "Revenge is good for your health, but pain will find you again."

    I've been having a month of mostly being let down by celebrated films, so I thought I'd finally give in and watch something I've been told is a sure-fire hit. While it's understandable to me why Oldboy has been hailed as a modern classic by a wider audience for its unconventional visual-aesthetic and great twist, the film featured a visual style that contradicted the language of cinema which…
