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.

"Apparently Oldboy was Manga first, though I had no idea until much later. I still haven't read it so I can't honestly compare the two, but Oldboy is one of my all-time favorite films ever so I'd be doing it a disservice to not include it."
