OldBoy 2003 / Now On Kanopy

On his daughter’s birthday, Oh Dae-su gets drunk and is arrested by the police. His friend bails him out of jail and while he is making a phone call Oh Dae-su disappears, and is held by unknown captors, in a room for 15 years only to see the outside world through a television. But one day he’s released. That’s all that can be revealed, without telling too much of this intense and twisted film. All I can add, and this is precisely how I recommend Oldboy to new viewers: “You’re welcome & I’m sorry.” It is truly a twisted film, one that is mesmerizing in it’s directing, acting, and plot, all of which will stay with you whether you like it or not.

Absolutely fantastic movie. Acting and writing are well done, and the cinematography is on point. The use of long cuts during fight scenes keep you aware of what’s going on without sacrificing the intensity of the action. The plot is on you will have to wrap your head around, you may have to watch it twice, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
