Sympathy, Oldboy, Cyborg and Thirst but not Lady Vengeance? You'll miss out on Park Chan-wook's best.  :-\

Exception made for Secret Sunshine - though I prefer Oasis or Peppermint candy- the best films on the list commence with the one listed at number seven.

We all have opinions, AAAutin and I think yours is wrong.

Glad that the list is comprised of mostly under-seen movies

Has any other Marathon brought this much discussion and debate in just the planning phase? This Marathon would have to be at least 10 films long for most people to be satisfied with the selection. Perhaps it's the feeling that the other films will go unwatched (or at least unreported on).

I've seen Lady Vengeance. And only one of the films you mention is in the Marathon.

No, but then we never solicited as much or had as much time to prepare... or something like Letterboxd to set it up.

I'm really excited. You were never going to fit in all the movies people wanted included, but by the same token there really aren't any bad choices in the list. You also managed to include several of the ones I haven't seen, so it will be fun to follow along.
