Film: Oldboy

Now I'm conflicted. Oldboy was my introduction to Korean cinema and when I heard it was being remade I was like, "PLEASE NO!". Despite excessive use of upper case and the addition of an exclamation mark the Hollywood machine just continued on without skipping a beat.

But now I hear the remake is being directed by Spike Lee, who has the potential to deliver the goods in spades.

What to do, a what to do? When it comes out, and if it's deemed to be pretty good, the best course of action may be to watch both films back to back.
