Denoting Thirst

Sporting Black
It’s Friday and Park Chan-wook’s “Thirst” is going to be a nice break from the pile of work.

For the unsuspecting, Park Chan-wook is a Korean director most famous for his excellent vengeance trilogy: Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. His cinematographer, Chung-hoon Chung is also back for another outing in elegant brutality. Did I mention, the guy who scores his movie also has excellent taste? In Oldboy, Vivaldi was used in an unexpectedly brutal way.

Park Chan-wook's Thirst; a vampire movie for movie fans.

Also, a nice poster always helps to solidify the movie’s credential.

I’ve been avoiding promo materials for Thirst in fear of spoilers; yes, even trailers. All I can tell you about the movie is that it’s got a priest who’ve been turned into a vampire, I predict it’s going to be an exploration of indulgence by one of my favorite directors and actor, Kang Ho-Song. What I can assure you is that on the very least, this movie is going to be gorgeous.

In other news:
My brush pens are running out, they tend to make unpredictable marks and the marks tend to make pleasant suggestions. Will come back soon with more glimpses of what I’ve been up to.

Have a good friday, world!

  2. why dont you just use a REAL brush, PUNK?

  3. @Andy: I wish I could have walked into that absolutely not knowing what it was.

    @josh: Son, is that a reference or a foolish question? I used my trusty Pentel brush.
