RADIO // Beyond the SubtitlesPark Chan-wook, Thirst
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 7/27/09
One of the world’s most controversial filmmakers, South Korea’s Park Chan-wook has made a career by going to the extreme – in subject matter, depictions of violence and gore - in such internationally acclaimed films as Oldboy, which Steven Spielberg’s company is currently trying to remake, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and now Thirst. A vampire tale where a priest becomes a blood sucker and enters into an unholy relationship with a woman, Park calls Thirst "the most realistic vampire movie ever made" (27 minutes).
