The Handmaiden ★★★★★

The extended cut is so much greater: flowing in its labyrinthic narrative, clearer when it comes to the motives and definition of the characters, less cryptic and deliciously funnier.

It feels so simple, so clear and beautiful to watch this version that I don't think I'll ever watch the first version again - and I think those who never saw the movie just need to discover it with this extended cut to grasp it all in one take and see Park Chan-Wook's genius unfold the story so comfortably.
