Operation Kino 103 Review: Park Chan-wook's Lush And Possibly Crazy Stoker
Korean director Park Chan-wook has become an icon thanks to films like Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Thirst, but he's making a whole new leap with Stoker, his first film in the English language. Starring Mia Wasikowska as a young girl undergoing a very, very unusual coming of age, Stoker is lush and stylish and very, very weird-- exactly what many of us have come to expect from Park, really. But while Katey, David and Patches were thrilled with the results, we've brought in film critic extraordinaire Amy Nicholson, who wasn't a fan at all, to hash out the movie's pros and cons. We end with your answers to our lightning round question about movies released in February.
