A great aspect of the film is that you can scenes such as the long-take hallway fight scene one and the scene with the ants crawling out of the body of Oh Dae Su.
I love it when risky moments in films succeed and I think risk is the source of some of the best film moments of all time.
Oldboy is an amazingly directed film that is well worth your time.

Unlike other films where violence is simply added for stylistic shock value, the uncomfortable scenes are here for a reason in what for me was one of the most emotionally powerful films I had seen in a while.
And if the film hadn't already achieved it in the previous 100 or so minutes the closing scenes ensure that this is a film that is going to stick with you.
I've never seen a Chan-wook Park film, though I've read alot about him (I'm really getting into Asian cinema), but I feel like I need to now.
