I'm watching a movie called Old Boy. Has anyone else seen it? I've watched this movie over and over. The key is to wait a few years between viewings so that you can recreate the visual and emotional effect of it. Basically it is about an average man that is kidnapped and locked in a room for 15 years. And then he is just...released. They tell him he has 5 days to get revenge on them.
It's a Japanese film and is in the Revenge genre which is one of my favorites. I love all of the Japanese revenge stories. I've recently learned that OldBoy is a manga. It's also a part of a series along with Sympathy for Mr. Revenge and Sympathy for Mrs. Revenge. The latter might be hard for some as it deals with mutilation/torture. But under the circumstances of the story, it wasn't difficult for me to watch at all.
If you haven't seen OldBoy, it's on Netflex as an instant view. I highly recommend it. And unfortunately, as much as I'd love to discuss the end of the movie with people that have watched it--that can't happen because it would ruin it for others. But I'm pretty sure I cried and got sick at the same time. It is a happily ever after...sorta, in a twisted, deviant, creepy way.
