    STOKER Review. STOKER Stars Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, and Nicole Kidman | Collider

    As seen in Park’s previous films such as Oldboy and Lady Vengeance, the director has a talent for turning the morbid and disturbing into something operatic and strangely beautiful. However, those movies ultimately have more depth and nuance than Stoker, which does attempt to explore notions of predestination, inheritance, and neglect. Despite reaching at these themes, the subtext of the film is never as rich or as powerful as the technical craft that transforms Stoker into something far larger. Sadly, Park’s direction is no match for where the story ultimately ends up, and the character’s motives become murky rather than intriguingly ambiguous. It is an unfortunate yet strangely fitting conclusion for a movie where the art of the hunt is more seductive than the precision of the slaughter.

    Rating: B

    Sundance Review: Silly & Cartoonish 'Stoker' Is A Garish Misfire For Park Chan-Wook | The Playlist

    The risible "Stoker" is a brutally empty, deeply unfortunate movie, and Park Chan-wook's jackhammer of a tool he calls a brush is, on this evidence, something that should be locked away. [D-]
    Oof. Wow.

    Sundance 2013 Review: Stoker | CraveOnline

    This guy watched out of 'obligation', seemed to like it quite a bit. Looks like this one is running the gamut and is heading toward love it/hate it territory.
