“Hell is empty and all the devils are here”


I’ve recently reignited my obsession with Korean cinema and watched an old favourite: Sympathy For Lady Vengeance by Park Chan-Wook. The cinematography, art direction and story is incredible, which is no surprise based on his earlier works (Old Boy, Thirst, Sympathy For Mr Vengeance). I’m obsessed with the colours and costume design in this film; it’s almost as though Amelie and I Saw The Devil had a lovechild that went on to study surrealism. Even if subtitles aren’t your thing, I strongly recommend this film. It’s visually stunning and the story line is one of the best in the revenge thriller category.
