When Hollywood makes good to foreigners,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stoker (Blu-ray + UV Copy)  (Blu-ray)
This is one of the few and most representative examples of Hollywood still being Hollywood at present times, despite his decline made of lack of ideas, courage, etc...
Like it did in the glorious 30s to 50s, H. has shown the way, this time, to one of the most talented asian directors of the last decades, to still be artistic without loosing his touch, indeed making it more solid and balanced. On my opinion, this is his best movie (yes, better than Lady Vengeance and Old Boy).
He tried himself with the need for storytelling and the long tradition of Hollywood noir (starting with Hitchcock, all the way to Polansky, Lynch, etc...)and succeeded.
Stoker is a work of art, where every shot and moment is perfect and makes this dark story even darker.
Great to see it doesn't need to be long (less than 1 and 1/2 hour long) yet it seems so dense and full of significance and cinema and atmosphere, that you really don't care when some piece don't exactly explain itself. You just let yourself go with this irresistible and unique touch, that Hollywood, still and once again, managed to add value to instead of diminishing. A must-watch and watch again
