By the way, speaking of Murakami Haruki and films...

Anyone who is a fan of Murakami, Wong Kar-wai, and/or David Lynch should check out the Korean film Oldboy. The story reminded me a bit of Kafka by the Shore and Wind-up Bird Chronicle, while the visual style was very Wong Kar-wai style. I am a huge fan of WKW, but I have to say this one beats 2046 hands down.

But... consider yourself warned. It's pretty twisted, even more so than Kafka, and quite violent as well.
