I’ve just walked out of Park Chan-Wook‘s Stoker…sorry, nope. If you’re Variety‘s Guy Lodge, it’s “a splendidly demented gumbo of Hitchcock thriller, American Gothic fairy tale and a contemporary kink all Park’s own.” For me it’s the biggest “look at how I can out-Brian DePalma and his most excessive and looney-tuney!” show-off flick I’ve seen in a long, long time. Everything is visual candy to this guy, and half-sensible human motivation and story logic be damned…watch me have fun in my sandbox! Me! Me! Wheee!
Here are some post-screening q & a moments following today’s Eccles screenings of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and The East. I’ll supply captions later this evening — figure it out. I’ve got a party to attend.
