    Fans of Park Chan-wook probably remember that the master Korean filmmaker shot a short film entirely on an iPhone 4 a few years back (that is, two iPhones ago).

    Sundance Review and Roundup: Park Chan-Wook's Creepy 'Stoker'

    There's a risk every time a noted foreign filmmaker takes a stab at an English-language movie. Clearly, Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook ("Old Boy") knows his Hollywood history: he admits that Alfred Hitchcock not only inspired him to become a filmmaker but that "Psycho," "Shadow of a Doubt," and "Th...
