I Saw the Devil
Dir. Kim Jee-woon. 2010, 141 mins. 35mm. With Choi Min-sik, Lee Byung-hun. Splatter maestro Kim Jee-woon pushes K-horror to its limits in this shock-to-the-senses thriller. Hell bent on revenge, a government intelligence agent (Lee Byung-hun) hunts down the psychopath (Oldboy star Choi Min-sik) who murdered his wife, instigating a grisly game of cat and mouse, which drags them both through the darkest realms of depravity. This berserk chamber of horrors is leavened by Kim’s wickedly twisted sense of humor and cool, ultra-stylish eye for violence.
