A neo-noir with echoes of classical tragedy that come to a head in its shocking climax, the second film in Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance Trilogy has become his most popular and controversial since winning the Grand Jury Prize at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. In a riveting performance, Choi Min-sik plays Oh Dae-su, a man who is mysteriously imprisoned for 15 years and then just as mysteriously released. His search for his tormentor makes for a visually stunning, hyper-violent neo-noir with echoes of classical tragedy that come to a head in its shocking climax.

Presented by the Smithsonian’s Freer and Sackler Galleries, with support from the Korean Cultural Center and the Embassy of the Republic of Korean, Washington, DC.
