Believe it or not, Netflix has vastly improved its online streaming library over the last few months. Here are some films to take a peek at:
Oldboy – If you’re looking for a thriller that features quality character development, a deep engaging plot, and epic fight scenes, Oldboy is a must see. Korean filmmaker Chan-Wook Park delivers on his trademark vengeance plots and stomach churning visuals. Not a film for the easily queasy or uncomfortable, Park often likes to push and pull his audience with graphic scenes of sex and violence. Don’t be discouraged however; this film is worth every uncomfortable and intense moment. In the end you will be left wide eyed and with incomprehensible satisfaction.
Netflix synopsis: With no clue how he came to be imprisoned, drugged and tortured for 15 years — and no one to hold accountable for his suffering — a desperate businessman seeks revenge on his captors, relying on assistance from a friendly waitress. (Subtitled)
