Park Chan-wook is here to stay. That’s right, this week we’re reviewing Decision to Leave, the latest film from Park Chan-Wook, director of Oldboy, Stoker, and The Handmaiden. We discuss this South Korean neo-noir mystery thriller starring Park Hae-il as a murder-obsessed police detective struggling to control his attraction to a suspect in a murder investigation (Tang Wei). But we of course kick off the show with voicemails from the listeners and some brief chitchat about what’s playing in theaters right now.
