Ahh, ok, yeah! I'd love to see him in more movies like this one.

Where did you see it? It came on HBO/Showtime/IFC/ some sort of movie channel. I saw it once, and then never found the damn thing again!

Starz I think. I've only seen it on there twice within the past year.

That's what my new myspace pic is from (the one that's not me). It's a great movie. You should watch it.

Indeed :lol:.

Yup, best Korean movie I ever saw (also I believe the 1st Korean movie to get foreign awards), although "Sympathy for Mrs. Vengence" aint bad either (its like Oldboy, but its a girl),in fact, I think I like Lee Young Ae better than Choi Min Soo
It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

Last weekend, I saw Yojimbo and Sanjuro! Both excellent excellent performances by Toshiro Mifune. I think I preferred Yojimbo to the sequel, even though Sanjuro was undoubtedly funnier. But the rising tension in Yojimbo made the final climax really powerful.

I think you misspelled excellent. There's no "g", or "o", or "d" for that matter.

The only reason i didnt say it was excellent, was because I was confused a bit by the storyline, but i know if i did understand it the first time through i would have thought it was excellent. It was...marvelous the first time, and even better the 2nd time through!
