Oldboy vs. the Economic Crisis

This is kind of odd (not really funny, but kind of interesting). Someone has taken the most famous fight scene from Park Chan-wook's OLDBOY and redone it so Oh Dae-su fights the evil bankers/businessmen who caused the American/world's economy to tank over the past couple of years.

Cool homage.

I love "OldBoy". When Park Chan Wook was still making stories instead of philosophical exercises i.e. "Thirst".

There's a big Park Chanwook retrospective going on at the Korean Film Archive this week and next. Not many of them have subtitles, but he'll do a Q&A after "Mr. Vengeance" on Saturday. . .
