Park Chan Wook's THIRST
A movie review by Dennis D. McDonald
- Devout priest volunteers for medical experiment
- Becomes lustful vampire as a result
- Sex/violence/building-hopping/tragedy ensue
- Chock-full of interesting and funny character details that entertainingly transcend the Korean source to be instantly recognizable by anyone with a sense of humor
- Beautiful photography and editing
- Great acting
- Wonderful variety of characters
- Much sly humor
- A lovely leading lady, Kim Ok-bin
- A bit too long.
- If you like quirky vampire movies and can tolerate lots of sex, blood, and religious satire, check this one out.
