DVD review - Old Boy

Korean take on the revenge story with added far Eastern wierdness, a twist borrowed from a famous Greek tragedy and some cracking cartoon-style fight scenes. Some impressive nastiness, but I'd been led to believe it was harsher than Baise Moi. It's not.

Apologies if you've explained this elsewhere on your blog, but I know where your name came from. I don't know whether to claim a prize or feel ashamed of myself.

Definitely the latter!

I agree, Old Boy is pure quality - I haven't seen Baise Moi though - intriguing.

Baise Moi is about as harsh a film as you can see - it's like an X-rated Thelma and Louise with added unsimulated (and at times horrific) sex. And it's in French.
