While it felt long for a 90-ish minute film, it sure as help was one of the most engaging trips to the cinema I've had in a while. Beautifully shot, brilliantly scored by Clint Mansell, and the three central performances are superb. Kidman does what she does best; cold, detached, vulnerable. But Mia Wasikovska was astonishingly good from start to finish. The denoument was telegraphed a little, but it didn't stop this being a superb experience, Park Chan Wook has managed to transition into English language film while keeping the unsettling air which made Old Boy lso good (and which Hollywood will no doubt kill completely in the remake.
