August 30, 2022

We’re charmed by Chan-wook Park’s “Oldboy” and discuss:

  • Wes’ editing process and screenwriting blues;
  • Story & writing, the opening shot, sex scenes in movies, hallway hammer sequence;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

The ax forgets, but the tree remembers. – Proverb
