"In today's Hollywood, "Stoker" is a bit of an anomaly. It's a compelling story that is also perfectly executed. Wentworth Miller and Chan-wook Park are a good team; both the creative elements of Miller's script and the technical aspects of Park's direction come together into a film that is a watershed moment for both men. Not only is it a solid first screenwriting effort for Miller, but "Stoker" takes a step forward for Park while still nodding back to his past."
