- Fri-Sat, Mar 15-16 at MidnightDir. Park Chan-Wook, South Korea, 2003, 120 min., R, 35mmOfficial Website
Director Park Chan-wook made his international breakthrough with this brutal tale of vengeance and transgression, detailing the imprisonment and subsequent travails of Oh Dae-su (Choi Min-sik) and the twisted story which brought him in to his Greek tragedy of a life- a story enthralling enough to attract Spike Lee to an upcoming English-language remake. For Oldboy, Park won a prize at Cannes and the enmity of PETA, in the process expanding his sphere of influence far beyond South Korea, a path that eventually led him here to Nashville to make the locally-shot and crewed STOKER (opening March 22nd).
