SCREENING

Oldboy

Ongoing

Dir. Park Chan-wook. 2003, 120 mins. 35mm. With Choi Min-Sik, Yoo Ji-tae, Kang Hye-jung. In this visually entrancing revenge thriller—the middle, and best known film in Park’s Vengeance Trilogy—Choi Min-Sik masterfully plays Oh Dae-su, an ordinary businessman who survives fifteen years of captivity in a single room only to be released and further tormented by his captor. As Oh uncovers the mysteries of his kidnapping, he leaves behind a trail of horrific vengeance. An international box office success, Oldboy cemented director Park’s reputation as a master of cruel pulp.
