Old Boy – TPH X Four Pillars Presents…

TPH X Four Pillars Presents ‘BLOOD LUST: A BLOODY SHIRAZ GIN & FILM FESTIVAL. Four Pillars will be slinging the cocktails and we’ll provide the scares! Join us for the rerelease of Old Boy restored in stunning 4K with a DJ set by Fee B-Squared!

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.
