Stoker (2013)



Critic Consensus: Its script doesn't quite carry the dramatic heft of his earlier work, but Park Chan-wook's Stoker showcases his eye for sumptuous imagery and his affection for dark, atmospheric narratives populated by mysterious characters.

It's too safe, too knotty, too wastefully handsome, too dull.

The shame is that while the film is as glossy as late DePalma, essential Hitchcockiness is swapped out for random ickiness, a sorrow in light of Park's own history of crafting sleek, liquescent, swamping fever dreams.

Enthralling and tremendously entertaining.

Will no doubt be dismissed by a few as little more than a work of filmmaking panache. The panache, though, is what makes the film great.

It's real strength, perhaps, is in its gaps and silences, which allow director Park to go to town with mood, composition and imagery.

I saw the blood but not the beauty or the growth.

Dark, twisted story. Not sure I got it all, but fascinating and beautifully filmed and acted. One to rewatch, I think!
