Welcome to our newish weekly column, "Staff Picks," in which we ask the staffers at our favorite book, music, and movie stores around to town to share with us what they're reading, listening to, and watching this week. We figure they're good people to ask. Last week we talked to Mr. Lou at Academy Records, and this week it's over to Williamsburg movie rental emporium Videology, where clerk Adam Sypnier tells us what he's been watching lately.

I Saw The Devil

Adam says: "South Korea is really making a name for itself with some seriously incredible films, especially in the crime thriller category. In Jee-woon Kim's second major film, we get over two hours of beautiful and brutal violent crime in a story of bloody revenge. While at first it may seem like it's going to be a typical chase after a killer and then the great dénouement where the hero has to make some sort of life choice, it quickly diverges from that once the antagonist is caught pretty much right off the bat. From there, it's just watching a ridiculously intense downward spiral and figuring out the hero's plan in all of this. I Saw the Devil is definitely not for the faint of heart, but if you want to get that blood pumping and see a thriller done gorgeously, this is the way to go. After you're done with that, I highly recommend you check out some more of South Korean's specialties, like Oldboy and Memories of Murder."

I Saw The Devil is available for rental at Videology for $3.50.
