Oldboy is a delirious, confronting ride, a movie full of visceral shocks and aesthetic pleasures ” The Age
Join us at TPH for the rerelease of Old Boy restored in stunning 4K. Violent and definitely not for the squeamish, Park Chan-Wook’s visceral Oldboy is a strange, powerful tale of revenge. Dae-Su is an obnoxious drunk bailed from the police station yet again by a friend. However, he’s abducted from the street and wakes up in a cell, where he remains for the next 15 years, drugged unconscious when human contact is unavoidable, otherwise with only the television as company. And then, suddenly released, he is invited to track down his jailor with a denouement that is simply stunning.
