The master of philosophical carnage, Park Chan-wook reaffirmed the ongoing world-class
status of Korean cinema with Oldboy (2003). In a precursor to Saw, a man finds himself inexplicably imprisoned in
a whimsical kind of solitary confinement. Fifteen years later, he's plenty
pissed off, so when he's released and given five days to find his tormentor,
he's ready for revenge. It's this weekend's midnight feature at the Coolidge
Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Friday, May 13-Saturday, May 14 @ midnight | $9; $7
students, seniors | 617.734.2501 or coolidge.org.
