Oldboy ★★★★★

Based on the manga of the same name, written by Garon Tsuchiya and illustrated by Nobuaki Minegishi, this co-written and directed movie by Park Chan-wook deservedly won the Grand Prix award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. The remarkable central performances from Choi Min-sik, Yoo Ji-tae and Kang Hye-jung ensure the momentum of the narrative never becomes stationary, and the film’s captured engagingly. So much of Oldboy is outstanding, and there's little disputing it's significance as one of Asian cinema’s most extraordinary accomplishments.
