Park Chan-Wook reveals details of his next film project
20th Oct 05
Having just seen Park Chan-Wook's latest film Sympathy For Lady Vengeance whilst currently out in Hong Kong (see our forum for a short review here), I can now safely say that this Korean insanilist who also brought us Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr Vengeance, is fast becoming one of my favourite directors.
So it was with great excitement that I found a cool interview with Park Chan-Wook (as I'll be calling him from now on, rather than Chan-Wook Park!) over at the glorious suicidegirls.com website where the director talked about SFLV, and more importantly, his next projects.
Next up is a film apparently set in a mental institution that deals with "the confusion of identity", with the film following that (phew - no rest for the wicked, eh?) being a film about "the existence of the devil, like God versus Devil. It's more of a religious type theme".
In other Park Chan-Wook news, a four-minute clip of Park's contribution to Three Extremes, the opening section called Cut has appeared online at www.moviesonline.ca. Seeing as I've managed to also pick up a DVD copy of that film out here in Asia, expect a review of this film as soon as I get a chance to sit down and see it.
Stay tuned to eatmybrains.com as we'll be bringing you a full review of Sympathy For Lady Vengeance very soon, courtesy of David Hall who will be seeing the film at it's upcoming screening at the London Film Festival.
