just got from the Advanced Screening of "Stoker" awhile ago from Robinsons Movieworld and i must say that i loved it (while my friend hated it coz she found it so sick, i told her after the movie to see Oldboy but said no, hahaha)
those who are not familiar with how sick some Korean psycho-thrillers could ever get would get the shock of their lives like my friend. and i don't think i have to spoil some of them for you, some of those are already suggested at the trailer.
there are times where watching this film felt so much like watching a Korean thriller except that the only Koreans in this film are the director and some crew if you saw the opening credits and the cast consisted of Caucasians which means eliminating the "need to read the movie". it works for the movie's advantage and you simply have to brace yourself for whatever crazy sh!t is bound to happen knowing that as early as the first 15 minutes of the movie, you get the gist that the widowed mother is not the only psychologically unstable among the characters.
the long shots are nice that they should have done away with the shaky cam treatment. besides the performances that the cast dished out are brilliant. it's like imagine seeing some psychologically disturbed people who try their darnest to act normal (at least, they try) but fail because the people around them could see how unstable are they. that's how i perceived, India, her mother and Charlie turned out to be.
colorful cinematography that complimented the subliminal use of musical scoring and nuanced performances that looked like suppressed boiling kettles (on the brink of bursting), i enjoyed the film. i know my movie companion would call me sick in the head for saying it but perhaps i am like India who get attracted to the sick and disturbing without knowing totally why
will this be a good date movie... hahahaha... already watched SLP eh but my date has not kaya pinagiisipan ko tuloy...
I actually found the movie interesting, being a fan of dark movies. It's a dark, twisted, fairy tale of sorts.
opens nationwide na bukas ang Stoker! I will watch it legit.

I LOVE IT!!
Nice Nice Nicole Kidman
Mathew your so Goode
Mama Mia!!! Wasikowska
at kahit maliit lang role ni Jacki Weaver may impact at si sheriff.
kung pinalabas to ng 2012 ito best movie sa akin ito dapat binibigyan ng awards from director , cast cinematographer .
PANALO!! 10/10 same kami ng rating ng Empire Magazine (sa pov ng di kilala yung director at di knows yung Oldboy na sinasabi)
Can't wait to see this fcuk the siht out of me.
We don' t need to be friends... we' re family.--India Stoker
nung di ko pa siya napanood parang wala lang yung sinabi ni India na to sa trailer but after the movie may deep meaning pala yan.
OMG almost 24 hours na siya ng mapanood ko nasa mind ko pa rin ang movie thats the sign na may impact siya
at least dito sa Stoker, mas ramdam ang presence ni Jacki Weaver. sa SLP, she's just .... there
me talking to my friend while staring at our premiere tickets
her: he's gwapo
me: he's the creepy kind of gwapo
her: i like the creepy kind of gwapo
during the film itself
her: that girl is CREEPY
me: and she's done anything yet
halfway through the movie, parang hihingan na ako ng katabi ko ng barf bag. awa ng Diyos nakapagpigil siya
1 kidman and mia w. are two of the palest girls on screen.
2 matthew goode is good. i bet he'll get more offers after this.
3 for foreign directors like park, the best way to tell a story is visually with as little dialogue as possible. case in point Let the Right One in by tomas Alfredsson
4 sequel? the stoker trilogy?
