The 5th Hall Of Fame Inductee Representing Thriller Film - Oldboy (2003) - Park Chan-wook

No director in recent memory has exploded onto the international filmmaking scene with quite as much impact as Park Chan-wook did at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004. A wonderfully macabre Kafkaesque tale of a man imprisoned seemingly without motive for fifteen years only to be mysteriously released, Park’s pitch-black humour and tremendous sense of pacing give this film an energy most thrillers this complex are lacking. Like it’s protagonist Oh Dae-su, portrayed to such stone-cold brilliance by Choi Min-sik, the film is flaming ball of majestic malevolence whose exploration of revenge will leave indelible stains on your consciousness.
