Chan Wook Park trilogy about revenge shows many different facets of revenge. However the film trilogy as a whole can show vengeance in a new light. Showing not just a bloody path to fulfillment but the amount of effort one must put in to get close to their finale. No film ends as your typical vengeance thriller and leaves viewers with some conflicting feelings. It raises the questions of whether revenge is ours to get and if it sates our satisfaction or a deep need of fulfillment.
Would be neat to compare American crime-thrillers Stoker (Wook's first American production) to this trilogy. – Thomas Munday6 years ago
