Be it a grain of sand or rock, in water they sink as the same.
It’s a rare moment, indeed, when a writer stumbles across something that completely defies expectation. A film which I’d expected to be something of a Korean gore-fest turned out to be truly one of the most heartbreaking films that I’ve seen in the past five or six years. It’s an honour to have the opportunity to write a review for the film Oldboy, a gem of a film that actually had me grabbing at my eyes, not for the fear of gratuitous gore, but because I was attempting to keep the brimming tears from falling from them.
Originally had this posted on Hayes Hudson’s House of Horror if you’re interested in reading the rest. Really cool cat. Really cool blog. Enjoy.
