Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (Dir. Park Chan-wook)- It's very difficult to watch as the plot starts to reach its climax; certain scenes become almost unbearable, but the superb acting from every element in this movie make it believable and support the heavy emotional weight of the story. The cinematography is, as usual, excellent. I like the way Park Chan-wook writes women in his films; they're far from being one-dimensional characters, they're flawed, and above all, human. A must watch.
