Chan-wook Park tackles his first English language film and by the looks of the trailer it seems to have potential. For those not familiar with Park’s work I recommend you watch Oldboy which is in my opinion his finest work second only to Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. Stoker exhibits some subtle nods to thrillers like Stepfather and Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of A Doubt which may be good and bad as some are already billing this a remake of Shadow of A Doubt. Matthew Goode whom some may recognize from Watchmen as Ozymandias looks to make a name for himself as mysterious Uncle Charlie. While I feel this film is not going to be a box office success I do think that it will continue increasing Mia Wasikowska’s stock in Hollywood.
