Lee Chang-dong, acclaimed director of Burning (2018) and Secret Sunshine (2007), has said of Park Chan-wook’s Thirst that it “could be the most unique vampire film ever made, equipped with overflowing cinematic imagination.” Park Chan-wook redefines the vampire genre with a quirky sense of humor and keen insight on the dark territories surrounding the human condition. Song Kang-ho plays a moral priest who accidentally turns into a vampire after volunteering for a medical experiment and is faced with the dilemmas of his new existence. In Thirst, Song showcases his exceptional mastery over satire, contributing brilliant and ironic tonality throughout the film. -Academy Museum.
