Episode 48: Park Chan-wook

CFCA member, film and television journalist Brian Tallerico stops by to talk about the critically acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-wook.  For this episode, we take a different approach and talk about his renowned, violent, existential revenge films, SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE, OLDBOY, and LADY VENGEANCE.  We later expand upon a couple more of his other films as well. In addition, Brian talks about a couple of recent and upcoming releases particularly ZERO DARK THIRTY, Patrick talks about the incredibly well-acted THE DEEP BLUE SEA, and Jim reviews the much-discussed, critically acclaimed HOLY MOTORS.  Also, for a special treat during the first half of the show, we go over some of the nominees from the 2012 CFCA Awards. The winners are available to view here, with a ceremony on February 9th, 2013 to follow.

In about two weeks after Christmas, we may or may not be joined by a guest to discuss the silent film master Buster Keaton.  Please be sure to leave us a voicemail to play on the show as well at 224-366-9528. If you’re a movie blogger/podcaster and would like a guest spot on the show to talk about a filmmaker whose work you admire.
