I really enjoyed this movie (watched it together with my wife, she even rated it 9/10) I think the cinematography/visuals in this movie are incredible and the actors were amazing too, I really fell in love with Min-hie Kim (Lady Hideko) what a perfect doll like face she has-wow!:)

The sky is the limit!

Extreme formalism but has some moemntos and images and parts that trascend it. The sexy pervertion of the characters, leading to the happy somber mutilation, while the lesbian girls are happy, is ok.

" Date: 6/11/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime First Viewing Note: I already review this movie before, you can read it here Seeing that June is LGBT Pride Month, I was in the mood to revisit this movie. I love the movie the first time when I watched it and I love even more on a second viewing. This is a movie that gets better with each viewing. I can't add anything new to say that has not been said already. Check out this movie if you haven't. "

" Date: 4/28/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime First Viewing Note: I have waited to watch this movie for a while now because I really enjoy movies from Park Chan-wook. I finally got the chance to watch the movie on Amazon Prime and I love it. While I do consider Oldboy (2003) to be my favorite movie from Park Chan-wook, this movie is still fantastic for having great characters, amazing writing, and fantastic cinematography. I loved the story in this movie because the movie has many great moments that"

A very good movie

“To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect but since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick and since I always had a weak spot for Chan-wook Park’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I was really impressed by the damned thing. First of all, it looked really gorgeous and, in this area, it is probably the best movie that Chan-wook Park has delivered so far. On the other hand, I have to admit that I didn’t know anything about the plot when I started to watch the damned thing and, to be honest, I did struggle at the beginning to completely follow what the hell was going on and who was who. However, eventually, it turned out to be such a fascinating multi-layered tale. Indeed, for starters, this tale was told from 2 different points of view” read more
