    I’ve still not seen Barking Dogs Never Bite, but everything else is pretty fantastic. Okja gets a bad rap, but it’s kinda like Bong doing Spielberg which is super fun. Memories of Murder is probably his best though.

    His short in the omnibus film Tokyo! is absolutely incredible and definitely something to seek out. (All three works in it are good, but Bong’s blew me away when I first saw it)

    funny to me that the movies regarded as his best are the ones I haven’t watched yet

    I’ve yet to see Memories of Murder, but Mother is a masterpiece imo.

    I can’t believe I get to watch this tonight, thought I’d be waiting another few months atleast

    Can’t stop thinking about this, just masterful filmmaking. The framing and cinematography was excellent, the comedy was pitch perfect and I can’t overstate just how bonkers it gets. You think you know where it’s going so many times and it throws something new at you, the tonal balancing act was so impressive

    Okja is fantastic imo but yeah, it didn’t get a great reception

    I thought it was pretty whimsical, captured the feel of a blockbuster while still bringing his trademark weirdness

    ^ ya I’m seeing it at tiff . I’ll be sure to report back.

    Honestly I hope this doesn’t come off as a humble brag but I’m also seeing the lighthouse after this and colour out of space after that and like ..... wtf this is gonna be the most wild day of cinema I’ve ever had

    Ya so this was brilliant. The way it skates between so many tones/genres is done so flawlessly. The cinematography is so on point during the entire film but especially near the end with the rain scenes. This whole thing was just a masterclass in film making from a director clearly at the peak of his craft.

    I’m not one who’s good at words but ya, this was incredible and I’ll be thinking about it for days.

    theres so much to unpack here in terms of how it goes about portraying the class divide of South Korea.

    This is very good. Snowpiercer and Okja were a low point, but he is back making interesting work. It is able to blend some of his more stylistic flourishes with a political critique on the realities of subservience under capitalism.

    Snowpiercer was good. Just too disjointed for its own good.

    I really like Snowpiercer and Okja, this is definitely a step up for him though. Easily his best.
