Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Stoker" is a thriller in which the big question is not "What will happen next?" but rather "What is going on?"
Fresh: A beautifully twisted, slow-burning psychothriller that may or may not all be taking place inside India's head, Stoker marks South Korean cult director Chan-wook Park's inaugural English language venture.
Fresh: None of it is life-changing, but it is effectively eerie. Stylishly spooky, even.
Fresh: If the destination isn't what it might have been, the journey is a heck of a ride.
This movie is under-rated.
This movie is freaking awesome!
Spectacular movie! Worth every penny
Park Chan-Wook is a creative beast!
The director of some of the greatest films to come of South Korea comes out swinging with his first American directorial debut. This film is equal parts beautifully shot, and insanely demented; it's an art-house film that is gorgeous regardless of the scene, and you just can't look away from such a visually stunning work. While the story being told might be somewhat confusing, by the end, you won't really care. It's all about the artistry here, folks. If paintings could move and tell a story, this film would be it.
