'The Handmaiden' (2016) by Park Chan-wook. My second taste of this engaging and remarkably visual directors work. Colourful, narratively imaginative, brutal, sexual, thrilling. I could go on. The twists and turns of this period tale invoke internal applauds in abundance. If you love surprises, a spot of gore and can handle the sexy stuff, 'The Handmaiden' is the standout film of 2016.
