Saw it at the film fest last year...definitely one of my favourite picks. I knew pretty much nothing about it going in so all the twists and freaky scenes were completely unexpected.
 
Saw it this past summer. Came in second place at Cannes after Farenheight 911.

And yes I agree with you, it was the best film I saw last year.

Korean Cinema is fucking rocking as of late.

Universal Pictures will be remaking this, and they have agreed to keep the shock twist ending believe it or not.

if you like korean films check one out called Taegukgi. an amazing film about the korean war. the synopsis from imdb:

When a group of Korean archeologists find a skeleton and identify it, they call the brother, Lee Jin-Seok, who is now an old man, to tell him that they have found his brother's body, who died in the Korean War. We travel from the present to 1950, when the Korean War started. Jin-Seok and Jin-Tae, Jin-Seok's brother, are young men who suddenly find themselves catapulted into a bloody world so different from their quiet, rural lives. As the war progresses, the war begins to poison Jin-Tae's mind. Jin-Seok is lost when he finds that he no longer knows who his brother is.

I see your Tae Guk Gi (I've seen it - the gore and feeling is pretty on par with Saving Private Ryan :)) and raise you 2009: Lost Memories (try to imagine The Manchurian Candidate crossed over with Blade Runner), Tale of Two Sisters (one of the creepier Korean horror films - based on a Korean folk tale) and Wonderful Days (being retitled here as Blue Skies - Korean anime film that's pretty compelling).

Not sure as of yet, but it's on the Tribute website. I think the Paramount might carry this and the AMC theatres might try to grab it too.

Go this this Chris. I was absolutely floored when I saw this back in July. The director of this embodies some of the best characteristics of Gondry, Cunningham, Fincher and just about every other new, emerging talent.

Saw Taegukgi and Chingoo (both w/ the same main actor - Dong-Kun Jang) about gangs in a DVD-bong a couple months ago in S.Korea. Great movies coming from that country.

Just an FYI, they have copies of this on DVD for sale at Suspect Video, and there's a place near my work at Steeles and Warden that has it as well. If you miss it in theatres, let me know, I'll throw you an extra copy of it that I own.
