Our take

Based on the horrifying case of the Korean Zodiac Killer, Bong Joon Ho’s acclaimed thriller strikingly evokes a mood of apathy amid the lonely countryside populated by mysterious tunnels and reed fields. The director’s now-signature weaving of brutal violence and dark humor made this a smash hit!
