    Haha...no I'm not....

    If this one sinks...so probably does his Hollywood career (see John Woo for example)

    If its a hit...he will be able to line up something else relatively quickly.

    Hollywood can offer him the budget, actors and technical talent to go far beyond what he was able to achieve in Korea......but maybe not the freedom...

    Positive review up on TWITCH...

    It's been a long wait for Park Chan-wook's (Oldboy) English language debut, but that wait is finally over. Stoker is here - and boy will Park fans be happy. A highly stylized mystery, the film delivers what the South Korean auteur does best: moody mise-en-scene with intense moments of ultra-violence. This is a dark, dark story, yet somehow Park is able to impart a safeness that allows the audience to sit back and enjoy the thrill ride. Stars Matthew Goode, Nicole Kidman, and particularly Mia Wasikowska all shine. One particularly heated scene will really get people buzzing about an all-grown-up Wasikowska. Fox Searchlight already own US distribution rights and the March 1 release should see healthy business and a lot of new Park fans.

    A few more positive reviews.

    Fangoria:

    STOKER manages to be simultaneously beautiful, thrilling and frightening, and is different from most anything we’ve seen in recent time. By presenting moral questions in the midst of the suspense, Park challenges the audience intellectually and spiritually, and does so with impressive finesse. Beyond showcasing the formidable talents of his biggest-name cast yet and a potential breakout turn from Goode, STOKER proves that the director’s unique brand of thrills and chills works in any language. For horror fans seeking something fresh and unique, look no further.
    Hollywood Reporter:

    As a connection forms between India and Charlie -- a sexually skewed mirror, maybe, of the deep bond she had with her father -- Park's unsettling visuals and his handling of the cast make the occasional holes in Wentworth Miller's script practically irrelevant. It's hard to guess whether India is a heroine about to slay a dragon or a beast being born. In the world of Stoker, that seems like a perfect definition of adolescence.
