Park Chan-wook Corea del Sud, 2002

HKFanatic's rating of the film Mr. Vendetta

12 years ago, I would have told you this was my favorite Park Chan-wook film, and it's precisely the kind of movie I enjoyed in my early twenties: full of pitiful and pitiable characters caught in a fatalistic loop of violence. I like to think both myself and Park have grown in the ensuing years, but to say there's still a visceral thrill when Shin Ha-kyun enacts his revenge with a baseball bat is an understatement.
