Oldboy ★★★★★

Park Chanwook's masterpiece "Oldboy" was my gateway drug into Korean cinema and to this day is still my favorite film from Korea. (Although I'm sure for a lot of people today "Parasite" will be their gateway drug into Korean cinema). With pure Hitchcockian suspense, the brutal violence that feels like it has purpose, and one of the darkest twists in cinema, "Oldboy" is a revenge film for the ages.
