Bright, shiny, new streetcars that convey "choice riders" around town are typically seen as a boon in any urban area. But the truth is that today's streetcars are making transit worse.

Marshall Fine

Chan-wook Park's Stoker is audaciously, in-your-face creepy and exhilarating in a way few films have been since David Lynch's Blue Velvet. Because it's not just the creepiness -- but the way Park gets you involved in his world so that you can't look away.
