Oldboy (2013)

Directed by
Spike Lee

104 min 18 Spike Lee directs a slick, super-violent remake of Park Chan-wook's internationally acclaimed surreal thriller. Josh Brolin stars as egotistical, alcoholic advertising executive Joe Doucette, who is mysteriously imprisoned for crimes unknown and subsequently framed for the murder of his wife. Over the 20 years of his incarceration, Joe lives in solitary confinement under constant surveillance, with only a television for company, which eerily transmits footage of his now completely estranged daughter. When Joe is finally and inexplicably released in New York, he embarks on a violent, hammer-wielding quest to uncover the identity of his captors and wreak revenge. Recognising Joe's anguish and frustration, drug clinic worker Marie offers to help him in his search.
