Vengeance is served not just cold but repeatedly in
Korean director Kim Je-woon's relentlessly gruesome and frequently hilarious I Saw the Devil (2010), in which a member of the police elite
whose fiancée has been butchered by a serial killer takes justice into his own
hands. Over and over again. Crime may not pay in this movie, but punishing
crime offers diminishing returns as well. With a chilling, oddly endearing
performance by Choi Min-sik as the homicidal psychopath, it screens tonight and
tomorrow at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Friday, May 6-Saturday, May 7 @
midnight | $9; $7 students, seniors | 617.734.2501 or coolidge.org.
