I liked it. Just not as much as those. I've also seen most of I'm A Cyborg, but never finished the entire thing. I really want to watch My Sassy Girl.

It's interesting to see Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance getting so much love.  I thought it was by far the weakest of the three.  Then again I loved the other two.

Hong: Woman is the Future of Man and others

Cool.  What are the rest?  Mine are Kangwon, Woman on the Beach, Virgin..., and Turning Gate.  Really like the first two; like the last two.

I've seen Kangwon, Tale of Cinema and Virgin. They're all kind of the same for me. Maybe Virgin would be 2nd. I have Turning Gate around here somewhere...

Old Boy

...beautiful, angry and sad, with a curious sick poetry, as if the Marquis de Sade had gone in for pastel landscapes.

I have only watched a handful. Here are the top 5:

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance
Oldboy
Memories of Murder
Stoker
Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance


Hoping to get people to update their lists to get some recommendations. I am thinking of making a marathon thread out of this. Current watchlist:
