It's time for the fourth entry in the Marsh Film Club. This one was selected by tao.
I've set a viewing deadline of 17 June, so make sure you watch it before then and please don't post any thoughts/spoilers until after that date.
Feel free to use this thread to talk generally in the meantime - let us know if you're taking part, any difficulties tracking down the film, or just to say you've watched it.
tao: Don't forget to post some discussion points for us before the deadline.
For those who want to go the extra mile, you might like to watch the other two films in Park Chan-wook's 'Vengeance Trilogy': Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002) and Oldboy (2003). Each deals with the themes of revenge, violence, and salvation. The films are not narratively connected and were dubbed a trilogy by international critics because of their thematic links.
so down for this. I'll be doing all three since I never saw the first one, and I could use an excuse to watch Oldboy again.
Think I'm gonna do the same if I can find the time. My friends wanna watch Lady Vengeance with me and one is in Calgary for 2 weeks so I'll do them in order so that he arrives back in time before the deadline
