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.

Our take

The centerpiece of Park Chan-wook’s thematic triptych, The Vengeance trilogy, is also one of the most popular international hits of the 2000s: an extreme hyper-surreal revenge saga that spasms with energy and has blown minds the world over. Winner of the Cannes Grand Prix. In HD.
