our film reviews: from armchair viewing to the festival front row

[Reel-Reviews] Oldboy (5 stars)

I’m honestly still working out what this film was about, who did what to whom and why. And we watched it more than a week ago!! Fabulous script, great ideas and well executed – but it will mess with your head. It's easy to see how it won the year Tarrantino charied the Cannes jury! A film about revenge, vengeance, family, redemption, remberance and forgetting.

Go watch – unless you’re offended by death, swearing, sex, violence, eating animals, etc, etc. On second thoughts, don’t. And if you do, remember, I certainly didn’t recommend it! ;-)
