Mathieu Verbeeck's rating of the film Oldboy

After watching this masterpiece for the second time, I appreciated all the subtile and macabre touches even more. Dangling its audience over a precipice from its rooftop opener to its uniquely twisted ending – via evil hypnotists, live cuisine and family affairs – the exhilaratingly out-there Oldboy can count itself amongst the best films of this millennium (but equally makes me worried to see Spike Lee's remake)
