Today’s next Interview: Park Chan-Wook

I was a fan of “Old Boy.” I also enjoyed Park Chan-Wook’s entire “Vengeance” trilogy — “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance” being the last of those.

And “Thirst” gave me the creeps, big time.

Now, as Spike Lee finishes the American/Hollywood “Old Boy,” the Korean filmmaker prepares to serve up his first “Hollywood” film. “Stoker” is sort of a riff on Hitchcock’s “Shadow of a Doubt,” a film about a grieving, standoffish teen (Mia Wasikowska) and her just-widowed/still in shock mom (Nicole Kidman) and the uncle (Matthew Goode) who shows up to mesmerize and obsess them both. Is he what he claims to be, or more? Or less?

    Were there any marked disadvantages or advantages in filming an American/English-language film? Did you set out to distinguish your Korean work from your English work?
