In the segment "Cut," towards the end of the film there is a panning shot looking in through a window. The reflection of one or more persons standing on the outside portion (the side the camera is on) can be seen. See more »
Lions Gate's U.S. version changes the order of the segments. In the original Asian release, the order was "Box"/"Dumplings"/"Cut." The American release has been changed to "Dumplings"/"Cut"/"Box." See more »
The idea of having Chan-wook Park, Takashi Miike and Fruit Chan as part of the same DVD set is enough to warrant a purchase. This was the sole reason I watched these three shorts.
While Miike's offering was very enjoyable, and had some interesting scenery and Chan's Dumplngs was also very entertaining, Chan-wook Park stole the show in my opinion.
I now wonder if CUT isn't what SAW should have been.......?
Unfortunately I can't speak on the film too much as I could ruin the story, but if you are a fan of either OLDBOY or Sympathy for Mr Vengeance this short IS A MUST. Chan-wook Park continues to impress me with his creativity, and the camera work in this film was GREAT. There are two directors that I currently find to be very interesting, and I will watch anything they produce. Micheal Haneke is one, Chan-wook Park is another.
I have heard rumours of Sympathy for Ms Vengeance, and I can only hope they are confirmed.
This was an easy purchase.
