The Korean revenge thriller genre has been gaining great interest ever since the release and popularity of Park Chan-Wook’s 2003 stunner Oldboy. Unflinching and unafraid to tackle terrifying topics, it was a film that stunned critics worldwide, garnering high reviews. Since then, these films have become a welcome subgenre, ones that we seek out to test our limits.
I was lucky enough to be able to attend a screening of Kim Ki-duk’s 18th film Pieta at the 2nd Annual Cinetopia International Film Festival. The tale of a brutal loan shark whose mother appears after 30 years, Pieta is a harsh, terrifying look at family, love, and revenge. “Every time there is a chance for hope, for a single glimmer of light, it is quickly dashed away.”
