Eleya and I watched Chanwook Park’s fabulously twisted and sumptuously shot revenge epic Oldboy last night. It’s not hard to see why this film garnered the Grand Prix at Cannes, since it is gripping from start to finish and features incredible acting, some tense action scenes, and a story with depth and emotion. Warning: this is not a good date film, but highly recommended anyway.
Finally, the band will be reconvening today for a rehearsal in advance of a few days of recording and a gig this coming Thursday. I’ve really missed playing with my normal crew, so it will be a lot of fun, I’m sure.
