On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies—and the occasional TV show—in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below, Slate film critic Dana Stevens talks with Brow Beat’s Aisha Harris about Spike Lee’s Oldboy, a remake of the acclaimed 2003 thriller from South Korean director Park Chan-wook. Does Lee make the film his own? Will it appeal to American audiences unfamiliar with the original?
