    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Incest, hypnosis, and a recurring motif of graphic oral extraction. You get to pick two. All three, and you lose me.

    Park Chanwook is undeniably a master of his craft, visually, as a great many sequences of this movie are just an absolute pleasure to watch. But the story this film is telling fails to resonate on any of its disparate and schizophrenic thematic levels, and often feels more exploitative and sensational than visceral and biting.
