Oldboy is a powerful film not because of what it depicts, but because of the depths of the human heart which it strips bare.

It's a movie of such jaw-dropping violence, wild improbability and dazzling style it overpowers all resistance.
Oldboy caused a love-it-or-hate-it stir at Cannes last year, and how could it not: It's an onslaught made to cause a sensation. Consider me simultaneously jolted and depressed.
His film is not for the weak of stomach or heart, but it's a stunner all the same.
