This is one of those movies that people like so they can prove how smart they are.

The Su Yeon she talks to?...She's not real...But the Su-Yeon that comes out of the wardrobe at the end...I never took her as Su-Yeon but rather a ghost born out of guilt that looks like young Su-Yeon in the picture with the green dress...

One of those movies that people like to prove how smart they are? So...does that mean if you don't like it, that shows how dumb you are? Do you have to be smart to like this movie?

I knew that she was the girl under the sink but I thought that was actually Su Yeon's ghost when she came to the realization that she was in fact dead when the father hit us with the revelation? The thought did occur to me that she was also a figment of Su Mi's imagination but I thought otherwise. Maybe i'm wrong. And I wouldn't even bother with Will Double. Have you seen his sorry ass dvd collection? My penis has better taste than he does.

Well, I certainly don't think the movie deserves the praise it gets but I did enjoy it and am glad to have it in my collection. I just don't think it's as original or ingenious as it's made out to be.

Still, I can see how certain minds would be floored by this movie and see it as pure gold. To each his own, I suppose. I would recommend it, but only for the cheap wal-mart price I see it going for in my town (I've never seen it priced higher than $9.99, and rightfully so).

At the beginning of the film the father is bringing her home from the hospital because she already suffers from this delusion, that's why he's always on the phone saying she's getting worse etc.. and who he's on the phone to is the nurse who Su Mi sees as the step mum character, but is actually a delusion. When she comes to the house at the end of the movie that's the first time she's really there since Su Mi came home from the hospital.

Jesus Christ I feel like I got brain freeze trying to get that straight in my head!

Thats why I love this movie though, there's so much going on that it takes multiple viewings to figure it all out, but it's filmed in such a way that you can. A lesser director would have easily made a muddled mess out of it.

I can't agree with on on A Tale of Two Sisters for the simple fact that I haven't seen it.

But I do agree that the decrepid girl with long black hair in her face gets VERY VERY old.

I also didn't see what people enjoyed about Versus? I mean it wasn't completely horrible, but honestly I would never watch it again nor recommend it.


American, Italian, Asian... Who gives a fuck? If a movies good it's good, if it's bad it's bad.

Thanks for proving my point because we all know how smart you are. I like to watch movies for enjoyment and for an experience. You like to watch movies that make you feel smarter for figuring out their dumb twists. If a movie doesnt entertain or hold my interest I don't care what half assed pscho babble bs the writer/director is shoving down my throat. If you need your tired film school geek insights into movies to prove to yourself that your a smart baby, fine. I don't, because I'm not insecure.
