Film
Friday, April 26
11 pm
Cost: Free
A free screening of Oldboy (2003).

South Korea | 120 min | R | Bluray | Dir. Park Chan-wook 

Dae-Su is an obnoxious drunk bailed from the police station yet again by a friend. However, he's abducted from the street and wakes up in a cell, where he remains for the next 15 years, drugged unconscious when human contact is unavoidable, otherwise with only the television as company. And then, suddenly released, he is invited to track down his jailor with a denouement that is simply stunning.

"Park Chan-wook's vicious story of vengeance is shocking in ways that most other movies can't perceive, but it contains an irresistible flicker of humanity, and it works on a thrillingly primal level." - Common Sense Media
