To describe Park Chan-wook's newest film, the vampire tale Thirst, to someone who has never seen one of his films is difficult. The movie is horribly violent, and features people doing terrible things to each other in between graphic sex scenes. But, like all of Mr. Park's films, the violence and sex are intercut -- and often interwoven -- with hysterical comedy, so you find yourself laughing at things that you might not normally find amusing.
It's a good day for DVD buying, especially if you like science fiction, vampires, superheroes, television actors and stereotypically gay men. And if you like all of those things, it's the best day ever. ...Of course, if you like all of those things, every day is probably the best day ever for you. Also, your room is probably awesome.
