I Saw the Devil
Violent, Korean thriller about a secret agent who pits himself against a sick serial killer after his pregnant fiancee is brutally murdered. From the director of The Good, The Bad, The Weird.
"Love it or hate it, you definitely won’t forget it. This genre-bender takes the Spy vs Spy antics of cop and serial killer to such devilish extremes that it may be too intense for some viewers. Choi Min-sik (Old Boy), a part-time bus driver and full-time sicko, destroys intelligence service agent Lee Byung-hun’s (A Bittersweet Life) world with one beastly act, beginning a cycle of madness and brutality for both men... Elevating it beyond pure nastiness is its oddball humour and the confounding way that we end up entranced by the deeply disturbing and yet poignant human connection between the men."
