I Saw the Devil (2010)

I Saw The Devil

Director: Jee-woon Kim

Writer: Hoon-jung Park

First off just want to say that I love the above poster.  One of my favorites of recent memory.  So evocative and creepy looking.  Definitely fits in with the current trend of having big letters down the center but I like that the face is hidden and the colors of the photograph.  It looks like a picture someone found on the ground instead of one manipulated in the computer to bizarre looking perfection.

Second off WOW Koreans do not fuck around.  I think this movie made my toes curl at least three separate times.  Very brutal and very intense.  Maybe too much.  2 hours and 21 minutes is a bit much for a bloody revenge movie but I definitely enjoyed it.  Great directing.
