    Amazing cinematography, brilliant concept, captivating acting, but at times a bit slow. The first 30 minutes are genius at work. 1 year 3 months ago

    dynamic cinematography that makes great use of unconventional camera angles and conspicuous background props to help tell the story in a script with relatively little dialogue. this also means that much of the story is driven by the actors' body language and expressions, and highlights moments of incredible poignancy. like his other films, Park drags you through the most intense emotions--humor and terror, revulsion and empathy, as otherwise likable characters are plunged into horrific ordeals by random events and the sins of others. poetically tragic, brutally gruesome, and stands on its own merits as a must-watch film, regardless of whether you have seen oldboy or not. 1 year 7 months ago
