This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re revisiting a special conversation from the 60th New York Film Festival with director Park Chan-wook and actor Park Hae-il on the season’s biggest hit, Decision to Leave. Moderated by NYFF Executive Director Eugene Hernandez.

Decision to Leave is now playing in our theaters! Get tickets here.

Busan detective Hae-joon (Park Hae-il) finds that he’s increasingly obsessed with a puzzling new case: a middle-aged businessman has mysteriously fallen to his death during a rock climbing expedition. Upon discovering photos of his abused wife, a Chinese national named Seo-rae (Tang Wei), Hae-joon begins to suspect it wasn’t an accident, all the while becoming emotionally and erotically drawn to her. From this Hitchcockian situation, director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy) weaves a swelling, expanding, ever more complex tale about a possible black widow and the investigator who just might be fashioning his own web. One of Park’s most enveloping and accomplished thrillers, which earned him the Best Director award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Decision to Leave is a constantly surprising, elegantly constructed film that builds in power to a truly haunting denouement.
