Immersed in Movies: Exclusive Design Video on Park Chan-Wook's 'Stoker'

With "Stoker," acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-Wook ("Oldboy") riffs on Alfred Hitchcock in his own artsy and oppressive way. It's a chilly reworking of "Shadow of a Doubt," (with nods to "Psycho" and "The Birds" along the way), that eventually takes a turn into Brian De Palma territory.
