5.0 out of 5 stars Vengence Trilogy Finale...., 28 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Lady Vengeance [DVD] (DVD)
A superb conlusion to Chan-wook Park's excellent trilogy of blackly comic tragedies. Korean cinema is among the most exciting and progressive in the world and Lady Vengenence showcases exactly why. Min-sik Choi (unbelievably brilliant in Oldboy and Shiri) is once again fascinating and Yeong-ae Lee is equally as compelling as the complex heroine. Park's distinctive aesthetic vision and dedication to conceptualised, textured production design really makes his work distinctive, with brilliant performances from the cast transforming the stylish and violent images into profound meditations on life and loss. With more subtlety employed in the depiction of violence and a more accesible script, Lady Vengence could be described as a more mature outing for the often confontational director. Again employing subtle CGI to create a sureal world in which to hang an equally sureal and macabre story, Park indulges the audience in a visual, viscerial tale of humananity and it's darker side. An easier way to start with Chan-wook Park than either Oldboy or Sympathy for Mr. Vengence, if not quite as satisfying as either of those two pictures.
