See this film series: Park Chan-wook's "Vengeance Trilogy" @ the Brattle

Many of you will get your first taste of the visionary, disturbing, and seductive cinema of Park Chan-wook with his first Hollywood film, Stoker, which opens Friday. For the full course, you should sample his Vengeance Trilogy, which will be screening as a triple bill at the Brattle Theatre on Wednesday, March 6. It includes Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002; 4:30 pm), in which a black-market kidney is just the gruesome beginning; Oldboy (2003; 7 pm), justly praised for its cephalopod-eating sequence and claw-hammer rampage; and Lady Vengeance (2003; 9:30 pm), with a scene involving a sliced Achilles tendon that Park himself says he has a hard time watching.

Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge :: $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors :: 617.876.6837 or
