Park Chan-wook, the visionary director behind Oldboy and The Handmaiden, won Best Director at Cannes this year for this stylish thriller. Decision to Leave begins with a man falling to his death from a Korean mountain peak, and unravels into a sensual noir with subtle nods to Hitchcock’s Vertigo–a constantly surprising, elegantly constructed film that builds in power to a truly haunting denouement.

One of the many pleasures of Decision to Leave is that the director Park Chan-wook clearly had as much fun making the movie as you will have watching it. Park dazzles you with the beauty of his images and the intoxicating bravura of his unfettered imagination. – The New York Times
