Top 10 Movies Of 2013: Sean’s List
If Alfred Hitchcock’s finest movie had a baby with Brian De Palma’s sleaziest film, it would look like Stoker.
Sinister yet stylish, evil yet glorious, Stoker is Park Chan-Wook’s ode to the dysfunctional family. It’s the only coming-of-age movie I can remember that trades in murder, incest, mystery and shoes. But it’s so gorgeous, marked by the director’s breathtaking, bold visual choices and subliminal references. Stoker boasts career-best performances by Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and, yes, Nicole Kidman. They’re all given in service of a proudly-wacky camp chiller that will playfully disgust and entertain those with a wicked, macabre sense of humor.
