The Canon 62 | 2/1/16

This week Devin & Amy are nominating Park Chan-wook's classic South-Korean mystery thriller Oldboy for consideration into The Canon. Based on a manga, it follows Oh Dae-su, a man who is locked in a hotel room for 15 years without knowing the identity of his captor. When he is finally released, he decides to find the guy who did this to him and get revenge, but does not realize that his search for revenge is all part of his captor's very elaborate revenge plan. Listen as Devin shares his love for the film & Amy discusses why all the computer scenes should be skipped if this is your second viewing -- and head to the forums on Wolfpop to cast the deciding vote!

It's been on my list for ages but I finally watched it last night. The Canon is such great motivation to catch up on great movies. I mean the conversations are great whether or not I've seen the movie and I'm happy to be steered toward great movies. anyway, OLDBOY...holy shit. And I had heard the twist years ago- which I only realized as it was being revealed last night. Incredible movie, great episode
