Oldboy
Feature
   
Kidnapped seemingly at random after a drunken night in police custody, Oh Dae-su is imprisoned by unseen captors for 15 years, and his wife is murdered. Suddenly released on the eve of staging his own breakout, he receives a wallet full of cash and a mobile phone, and an eventual bargain that, if he can work out why he was locked up, his tormentor will kill himself. If he fails, more people will die.[more]
Dead End Run
Dead End Run
Feature
     
Essentially comprised of three stories, linked by a wild chase down an alley, Dead End Run kicks off with a man being pursued by yakuza avengers. Drawn into the same alley is another man chased by a hitman, and then a third who is being pursued by the police.[more]
