Review: 'The Handmaiden' Is a Beautiful Revenge Mystery

Park Chan-Wook has built a reputation by using film to explore his fascination with classic revenge fables and humanity's inner-darkness, most notoriously recognized in his now-classic 2003 film Oldboy. In Chan-Wook’s stories, there are never any real protagonists to root for, just terrible human beings with terrible secrets that result in awful, vengeful conclusions. In many ways, Chan-Wook’s latest film, The Handmaiden, fits comfortably into the man’s canon. All of its players are manipulative, secretive and fueled by self-gain. Yet The Handmaiden reveals itself to be an entirely different kind of story than Chan-Wook has taken on before, and to an incredibly satisfying result.
