I recently had a chance to see Park Chan-wook's latest film, Stoker, up at Sundance, and I freakin' loved it! So far it's my favorite film up at the festival. The movie is hauntingly beautiful, and Chan-wook did an incredible job directing it. An new international trailer has been released for the movie that was scored by DJ Shadow. You've got to watch it when it's released. It stars Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, and Mia Wasikowska, all of which were incredible in the movie.
Here's an excerpt from my review: "The film was beautifully jacked up. I've always loved the Park's direction, but I think this is could be his best film production to date. It's his first English language movie, and he nailed it! His direction in this movie is brilliantly mesmerizing! I was sucked right into the story the moment that the movie started, and it never let me go. Hell, I wanted to see the story continue after it was over! The script was fantastic, and the cinematography was incredible. I loved how most of the storytelling was done through visuals."
Here's the Synopsis:
After India’s father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie, whom she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother, Evelyn. Soon after his arrival, India begins to suspect this mysterious, charming man has disturbing ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, the friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
The movie comes out on March 1st, so you wont have to wait long to see it. Here's the new trailer:
