Three years ago I went to Korea.  I had a hard time sleeping for about 2 weeks.  So of course I started watching tons and tons of movies in the overnight hours, when I should have been sleeping.  I asked some of the locals about good movies and 'Oldboy' was always at the top of the list.  I was warned though that it is a dark movie.


'Oldboy' is about a man (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and kept in solitary confinement for 20 years.  He is told nothing about why, or who has done it.  Then suddenly he is released with no explanation.  With vengeance and anger, he sets out to find out why.

After watching 'Oldboy' in Korea 3 years ago, I felt emotionally and mentally changed.  It was an experience in and of itself.  Therefore, I am quite excited to see Spike Lee's remake as the original (Korean) 'Oldboy' is in my top 3 movies.

Spike Lee's remake 'Oldboy' will be in theaters November 27th.
