A reader just sent this in and he makes one mighty good point ... I'm pretty shocked a major paper would print this ...

Hi ScreenAnarchy,

I urge your readers to send Rex Reed of the New York Obsever a message of utter contempt due to his insensitive and almost racist remarks regarding his review of Oldboy, of which he obviously did not like. As quoted from this link :

"For sewage in a cocktail shaker, there is Oldboy, a noxious helping of Korean Grand Guignol as pointless as it is shocking. What else can you expect from a nation weaned on kimchi, a mixture of raw garlic and cabbage buried underground until it rots, dug up from the grave and then served in earthenware pots sold at the Seoul airport as souvenirs? "

I would understand if he were to focus his opinion towards the film, but not generalize the whole of Korea.
