    After over a year of waiting I fInally got round to watching The Handmaiden, and no, I wasn't disappointed.

    It's based on the novel 'Fingersmith' by Sarah Waters, and to take what is a Victorian-era novel and transplant it in 30's Korea without losing a step shows a filmmaker at the top of their game.

    It is effectively an erotic thriller where relationships prove to be provocative and ultimately twisted: where sex seems like nothing but a long con and nothing is as it seems at first glance. Like all films that Park Chan-Wook tackles this could have easily fallen into the absurd, but as always you witness a masterclass in cinema.

    Park Chan-Wook is one of my favourite directors out there, and to me this is up there with his best. I watched the theatrical version, and there is supposed to be a director's cut available as well - I'll be seeking that one out too.


    A two and a half hour German comedy doesn't sound like the most appealing of films, but what you get is a genuinely humorous character study that is as happy to be as absurd as be invest in the humanist side of its subjects.

    It is literally a film about a father following her daughter about in a quite stalkerish and creepy manner: a daughter who to put it politely, has outgrown her father. It's the interaction along with the sheer ridiculous set-pieces that see that armour gradually chip away to reveal a relationship of yesteryear.

    It's already getting a Hollywood remake with Jack Nicholson and Kristen Wiig... I have low expectations.

    The handmaiden was the shit.

    Been wanting to catch Elle for a long time but don't know where to watch (don't wana see it illegally).

    The raid redemption is the best action movie I've ever seen.
