I was really excited when I first heard about Thirst, I couldn't wait to find a translation and watch it-- I'm not sure why it took me so long to finally get around to actually watching it. I'm quite fond of most of Park Chan-wook's works, and I had really high expectations for this film. I'm a little disappointed in it, I'll admit. It definitely had its redeeming qualities, and as with most of Park's films it was absolutely gorgeous aesthetically. I'm not sure what I expected from it, but in my opinion the story was kind of disjointed in an unpleasing way. Oh well. Still an interesting movie.
