Obtrusive Hopes
Hey folks,
I know, it’s been after such a long time I’m updating a post in my blog space. It’s still unknown to me that why did I missed you all these days? Well, I was not totally engaged in my studies though. :/ I spent these days especially after reading some Indian author’s like Chetan Bhagath and Preeti Shenoy’s best sellers with the fake identity in front of my parents that their son is seriously studying for the University exams which will begin by this May, 2013. Yes! Studying something in which you are not interested at would simply make offenses for your time as well as freedom. This is a lesson which I learnt when I got admitted to a professional course like Engineering. The effort you may have to put into achieving this degree is a mystic one according to my own personal experiences as an Engineering student. Actually the fact is, “How could a guy like me can sit similar to a DUMBO for more than continuous 7 hours of unwelcoming lecture sessions?” I’m not sure whether our Universe could accord this much tons of Doctors and Engineers in her! Does it mean we are only depending upon Engineers and Doctors for all our needs? If it is the case, how could you watch movies and songs for entertaining yourselves from daily pressures and strains? How could you live without maintaining health, in which food is a main factor? I can’t even think about it at least in my random dreams! “Life is what actually you make it, not others” I do have belief, trust and faith in God! If he is the person who made me, would definitely give me what I wish to do/achieve in life. What I’m waiting for now is my vibrant hopes in life to come true. Well, let’s hope for the best future coming ahead.

 

The other abject news which I have to share with you is about our movie! It’s finished and I’m waiting for the announcement of Fest result which will be available on the 19th of this month. It will be tight competition according to the entries they have received under this category. There are 500+ shot movies competing for the grand amount of 40k to bag in their hands. I’m planning to release it universally through YouTube on this March. Hope you all will enjoy watching it and would give the frank feedbacks about my new venture. For now, this is what’s left with me. Have a great time ahead, WP blooms. God bless. Cheers.\m/ 🙂

 

Review: Oldboy

A substantive revenge revealing flick!

Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy, a korean flick, which shows the concoction of sexuality, violence, and cinematic ingenuity in a well outspoken manner. It’s not a political or sexual flick, but it is all about the distortions of one’s personality as a result of revenge, which was meant for a corny incident happened during hero’s(Dae-su) teenage .Choi Min-sik did that role in a well explicit and extra ordinary manner. Hat’s off to you mahn! \m/ 🙂

 Movie begins with the drunkard Dae-su’s intemperate behavior and scrimmage against the police authorities, who arrested him under an indrawn custody. Later he released from there with the help of his friend,  Joo-hwan! He gets Dae-su to call home from a phone booth, but while the solicitous friend takes a turn talking to the birthday girl, Dae-su mysteriously DISAPPEARS.  Later we are supposed to see, Dae-su in a prison cell, where, with the help of a voice-over delivered by Dae-su from some time in the future, we find out the businessman has been imprisoned for 15 YEARS. The specialty about the prison is that, it’s a private cell by ill natured people for their customers to have their enemies kidnapped and locked up.  Dae-su’s life in such a complicated days made him to wait for the day of negotiation from there.  Life inside it was a comfortable cell, which resembles a very comfortable studio apartment sans kitchen, TV and all. He writes out a lengthy list of people he’s offended or injured enough to have plotted this revenge.

Let’s just say that Dae-su is, after 15 years, released from his prison and wanders into a sushi bar where he meets Mido (Kang Hye-jeong), an 18-year-old sushi chef with whom he soon takes up.  During this middle section, Dae-su is contacted over a cell phone he’s slipped – and, eventually, through email – by the mysterious man who paid for his imprisonment.  Dae-su also tracks down the prison’s location and wreaks a little revenge of his own on his hired jailers.

From here onwards, we can see the extremely violent, though the physical violence seems perfectly appropriate when you match it up to the psychic violence.  Also, Park throughout the film, has employed distancing devices.  He’ll use a medium shot instead of a close-up whenever he can, a long-shot instead of a medium shot.  The movie’s big fight scene – during which Dae-su pummels a platoon of pole-wielding thugs with a hammer (and wins) – is filmed in a beautiful and splendid way for the viewers.  Just before the fight begins, when Dae-su holds his hammer over the head of his first victim, a dotted line suddenly appears on screen tracing the path the hammer will take to the man’s pate. It’s really horrible as well as substantive one though. 😀

Park’s visual language can be lovely, as well.  In his cell, Dae-su had been susceptible to hallucinations in which ants had crawled all over his face and arms and under his skin.  Mido, who reads about it in his journals, tells him she feels bad for him; she’s read that people who dream about ants are lonely.  To show the idea of loneliness and ants as Mido imagines it, Park uses a computer trick to have an oncoming subway car cross the frame from upper right to lower left; whether intentional or not. When he cuts to the inside of a train car, all alone, and a placid-looking giant ant all alone in another.  It’s an antique moment, strangely serene, odd, and wholly different from Dae-su’s experience.

The middle portion of Oldboy belongs to Dae-su and Mido, their burgeoning relationship and how it tries to take hold under what turns out to be the surveillance of Dae-su’s foe.  The final third belongs to Dae-su and that foe who, by then, has openly revealed himself and prodded Dae-su to discover the source of his enmity.

Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy delivers a package of filmed vengeance that is steeped in rage and violence.  But it’s also a rigorously introspective movie of the times. For me, Oldboy is one among the movie that can be added to my top 5 flicks list. A MUST watch one! 🙂

Verdict:4.6/5

I’m so glad to share the youtube link of full movie with English subtitles here. Hope you guys will enjoy watching this irrevocable thriller. 🙂
