Reznikov🔥’s review published on Letterboxd:
I want to start off by saying that no amount of superlatives could quite explain how much I love this film. Don't get me wrong, A Dirty Carnival is still my favourite South Korean Film but I Saw the Devil is certainly high up on my list.
I Saw the Devil is a cutting depiction of the effect that committing violence has on men psyche's. Apart from that, it also makes a point about revenge that no other film has quite managed.
When you are wronged, when someone you love is hurt or taken from you, there is never any amount of eye for an eye that can meet that level of pain.
Thank you Cinèologist for the recommendation!
