Korean director Park Chan-wook’s first American film, a dark Hitchcock-inspired thriller, sounded like a real cool thing.  I’ve been a fan of his since his fantastic Oldboy (2003).  His other films have varied in quality but have all been good, all worthwhile.  So, I have to say that Stoker really surprised me.

It’s awful.

Arch and pretentious, it’s beautifully shot.  It’s shooting for something artful and clever.  But it’s freaking goofy bad.

I really like Mia Wasikowska.  She’s awfully cute.

But this movie.  It’s just really, really, really bad.
