Witty, playful, romantic, tragic, Park Chan-wook's I'm a Cyborg, but That's OK is a whole chocolate box of emotions in a highly decorative but absolutely characteristic wrapping.

Park's casting of Korean pop star Rain is as subversive as if he had cast a Beatles-era Paul McCartney as a serial killer in a slasher movie, but still instructed him to underplay his charms.

Left field under sells this bizarre but sweet love story. Open your mind to the strangeness and gradually it starts to make sense - sort of. Beautiful imagery… More

A very cool and amusing movie which is really a great piece of DVD rental choice in the Wolrd Cinema section. Some of it was quite baffling. At times it made me… More
