Oldboy

Although more psychologically valid than the usual revenge thriller, it does not transcend the genre. It's hard to stop watching Min-sik Choi because he is constantly twitching or grimacing in the most fascinating ways. However, the unraveling of the plot, as fantastical as it is, does not deliver on the premise from the first act. Recommended for the visuals and fine acting, but it is mighty gritty.
