The Bicycle Thief is scarier than Oldboy

Ian has been talking about Oldboy. The New York Times magazine had a long article about Oldboy's director, Park Chanwook (warning: this article contains spoilers). And I have been watching The Bicycle Thief. The Bicycle Thief is a realist Italian movie, set in the post war depression in Italy. Oldboy is a hundred times more violent, and a million times more graphic. But the Bicycle Thief scared me more. I was supposed to make lunch for my family but I could not stop watching. I think being a parent must turn you into a wimp.
