Magnet Releasing is planning a March 4 limited run for Jim Jee-woon’s absolutely fantastic I Saw the Devil (review), which has been accepted into the “Park City at Midngiht” portion of the Sundance Film Festival, taking place January 20-30 in Park City, Utah. It also screened at this past September’s Toronto International Film Festival. The pic, opening against Dimension’s Apollo 18, is a violent revenge thriller about a young secret agent tracking the serial killer who murdered his fiancee. It will be included on my top 10 of 2010 list.
“Lee Byung-hyun (The Good, the Bad and the Weird) stars as Dae-hoon, a special agent whose pregnant wife becomes the latest victim of a disturbed and brutal serial killer, captivatingly played by Oldboy’s Choi Min-sik. Vowing revenge, Dae-hoon blurs the lines between hunter and hunted and good and evil, eventually becoming a monster himself in his twisted pursuit of revenge. From Korean genre master Kim Jee-woon (The Good, The Bad and The Weird and A Tale of Two Sisters) I SAW THE DEVIL is shockingly violent and stunningly accomplished, transcending the police procedural and pushing the boundaries of extreme Asian cinema in surprising and thrilling new ways.”
