The Handmaiden (2016)

My second experience with Park, following Thirst 박쥐 (2009), in which I viewed only a week ago. This had been on my list of films for 2016. I see now that I had been missing out. An incredibly beautiful, although sometimes uncomfortable, period piece (Japan occupied Korea) that dives deep into greed, lust, betrayal, isolation, love, and companionship. I highly recommend anything that gets posted on my blog, but before watching, know that it is a strong R. Wikipedia lists it as an "erotic psychological thriller", and I would say that's pretty accurate.
