Critic Quotes: “Park is clearly an exceptional director capable of being weirdly funny, quirkily fantastical, brutal and sexy, sometimes at one and the same time. There’s no one quite like him.” – London Evening Standard
“Red blood and black humour spurt hard as Thirst reveals itself to be one of the most deliciously skewed incisions into the vampire romance subgenre.” – Little White Lies
“Thirst is a brilliant and gruesome work of cinematic invention as well as a passionate and painful human love story.” – Salon.com
