Thirst - (2009)
Director: Park Chan-wook.
I really wanted to like this movie...
I was impressed by the production design, mise-en-scène and camera movements (that are surprising and well made)
But I didn't care a tiny bit for the characters, and their story/arcs were boring and predictable.
Moreover, this film is taking itself way too seriously! To the verges of self-unawareness and pomposity.
Again, a classic case of "Oh, look, a Korean 'art' vampire movie, let's give it a nominations at Palme d'Or"
I don't say it doesn't have a place in the world, I just say Palme d'Or should not be that place.
Verdict: 2.5 / 5 ★ - A mixed bag.
