I Saw The Devil (2010) @ 악마를 보았다

"Honestly guys, I have never met Cho Seung-hui."

Naked dead body. Yummy.
"We wanted make it look cruel rather than grotesque," reads the notes from special make-up artist Kwak Tae-yung - but I Saw The Devil 악마를 보았다 is so unrelentingly brutal that there will be little separatin the two by the time you're through all 144 minutes of its R21-rated (Singapore) violence porno. Alright, that's an exaggeration. What is plain to see however, is that director Kim Jee Woon "wanted to watch the primitive energy that arises out of the clash of mad rage like an active volcano and icy-cold lunacy", which is why this movie doesn't even attempt to explain it characters or their motivations. It's a cold, cold thriller about how the wrong and the wronged go at one another in such relentless fashion that you simply cannot look away from the screen - and despite arrivin at these shores more than a full year after its South Korean release, I Saw The Devil, now apparently available in its uncensored entirety, is definitely hot stuff, and one for the filmmakin canon.

"I just want to go home and play with my iPhone."
Some people want more character motivation explained, I guess. Also, the bit involvin extra friends don't seem to gel with the rest of the story.
Perennial wonderment:
How hard is it to dispose of a dead body?
Reminds me of:
We have Old Boy Choi Min-sik to thank for his menacin screen presence, despite not havin appeared in anything for five years. He plays a seemingly pathological psychopath who kills young women for pleasure and on a freezin, snowy night, his latest victim just so happens to be the beautiful daughter of a retired police chief and pregnant fiancee of elite special agent Soo-hyun, played by international Korean icon Lee Byung-hun (Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joe movies). Lee's performance here is nothin short of extraordinary. It's a story that goes beyond cat-and-mouse to cover even catch-and-release. Perhaps the beauty in this peculiar film is that it is so fatalistically resigned from the outset and yet due to its stylish direction we are so drawn to follow the warring pair to the bitter end.

"Have you ever tried amputee sex?"
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
I Saw The Devil
is an aptly named film and I can definitely admire to the director's aspirations that "through the two characters who mercilessly attack each other for revenge, [I] hope the audience will question why some people lead normal lives while others live like the devil - also, wonder where did everything start to go wrong or where are we headed". Like Choi Min-sik's cult classic Old Boy (2003), it's a movie that forces us to examine the monsters we may not know we're keepin. ★★ 1/2
