While most reviews are popping up now for the March 1 release, Ryan Daley caught Park Chan-wook’s creepy family thriller Stoker at this past January’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
So, while we wait for you guys to post your own thoughts, Daley calls Stoker, which stars Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode, “an extremely slow-starter, a contemplative thriller that holds back the genre elements until the second half.
“As a murder mystery, it ranks as merely solid,” adds Daley. “But it’s virtually impossibly to overstate the beauty of Park’s visuals here. The rich color palette, captured with the assistance of longtime cinematographer Chung-hoon Chung, is nothing less than breathtaking. Virtually any still image from the film could be framed and hung as a masterpiece. While it may lack the dark intensity of Park’s previous projects, Stoker is the textbook definition of an art film.”
