That scene is fucking epic. The best part is where he starts boxing with the knife sticking out of his back. I also heard the scene of him eating an entire live octopus was real.
Yep, the eating of the live octopus is real. I have a 3-disc special edition of Oldboy
, and on one of the director's commentaries, he mentions the actor being a devout buddhist, and praying for hours before the scene took place.
Anyway, great movie, ton of fucking great scenes, but that fight scene was the best by far.
There's some bollywood rip-off of Oldboy
out there. I'll try to find a poster of it later.
P.S. That incestuous dude's sister was smoking hot. Oh Dae Su's daughter.... not as much.
