    Since Joshua seems to know about almost of the recently notable Korean movies, there is no way you guys don't know this movie, the movie from the director who won Grand Prix at 2004 Cannes International Film Festival.

    Response to this comment:
    old boy?

    well though i'm quite impressed by ur selection of top 10, most of them i haven't seen but u seem to know what u are talking about so i was suprised to see that my favourite film this year old boy not even mentioned. So i just want to ask what heppened? was it gravely overlooked? or did none of the reviewer find it as fantastic as i did?

    P.S looking in 2003 sympathy for mr vengeance was one of the top ten, so i don't see any reason why old boy isn't present grrrrr

    Editor's response: I don't think "Old Boy" was released in New York in the past year. I don't think any of us saw that film. But there's a chance it will be here in the future.
