Korean gem

Chan-wook Park does an amazing job as director of this Korean masterpiece. Slightly disturbing and totally twisted, Oldboy is not everyone's cup of tea. It is a clever tale about an average man who is kidnapped and imprisoned in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. He is then suddenly released, equipped with money, a cellphone and expensive clothes, only to discover that he must find his captor in 5 days. As he strives to explain his imprisonment and get his revenge, he soon finds out that not his kidnapper still has plans for him, but that those plans will serve as an even worse finale to the 15 years of imprisonment. At the end of the movie, you'll be sure to have had your own moral boundaries questioned.
