Okja Dirigida por Bong Joon-ho
Okja is, fittingly, a strange beast: part eco-political morality tale, part slapstick, part creature feature, things that don’t always gel… Taken as a whole, however, one feels that something exciting is being done in the throwing together of these disparate elements, something exciting that only Netflix would take a punt on Bong attempting.

Aside from Tilda Swinton’s hyperactive appeal and some flickers of visual invention (a giggling schoolgirl filming herself being chased through a department store by the titular giant pig), Bong’s predictable tale of corporate hubris and animal rights ambivalence feels itself like a talented director submitting to commerce, as Netflix, which funded the film, seemingly frowns on the rough edges of his past.

The image confirms the obvious—that the eye of the six-ton Okja is as large as Mija’s face—but it also does something magical: it makes believe that Okja is real and that she and Mija are inseparable. We believe in Okja’s reality not only because An as Mija relates to her as if she is there, but also because of the extraordinary digital animation of that eye.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Okja

    Vegan screed aside, there is something about "Okja" that just feels needlessly cruel, as though it only exists to take something pure and drag it through the mud of a cynical world, one in which both radical leftists and American super-conglomerates operate without the public's consent. Okay, that actually does sound like our reality, but did we need Jake Gyllenhaal's bizarre David Cross impression on top of that?

  • anarresti's rating of the film Okja

    [tiny spoiler] Its virtue is how it toys with stereotypes of opposite sides, the greedy ruthless capitalists, the naive idealistic activists. And in the center, oblivious to the disputes, is the story of a friendship between a little girl and an animal. The fact that Monsanto did try to patent the pig in 2005, makes this more relevant. See example patent applications WO 2005/015989 and WO 2005/017204.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Okja

    Bong continues to adjust uneasily to Hollywood—I'd take this over Snowpiercer because the insanity is more fluid and elastic (now featuring twice as many crazy characters played by Tilda Swinton!). For a while, I wasn't sure if it really felt meat was murder or if it was just mixing all sides into an absurd slurry of satire. It's when it tries to narrow its explosive elements into a tidy plot that it stumbles.

  • Ghostman's rating of the film Okja

    A scathing denunciation on western capitalism and the meat industry, Okja is a fearless and angry film underneath the cute veneer of a children's film. To be honest, this film is brutal and it doesn't flinch from showing humankind's Holocaust against animals. Its best comparison is Sinclair's the Jungle and not ET. This is one of the best films of year and Bong Joon-Ho is one of the best filmmakers in the world!

  • josé neves's rating of the film Okja

    PC/TV screen. I always imagined how would Miyazaki and Takahata's ecological parables and fables be if were transposed out of animated figures and, of course, Bong Joon Ho gives the clear answer: little different. A statement of principles against human's holocaust towards animals, that doesn't forget that cinema is a syncope of narrative dreamed images. Too bad the caricature is sometimes too coarse.

  • Skinnedteen's rating of the film Okja

    It almost feels like Miyazaki directed it with its personification of Okja. I'm getting some My Neighbor Totoro vibes from it and Bong Joon-Ho did such a good job executing this all so familiar topic with such outlandish, exagerrated characters.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Okja

    Another great effort from Bong Joon-Ho. After the home run Snowpiercer he yet again craft a beautiful, topical och exciting movie with heart and spirit. The acting is fine all around eventhough the juggling of the serious issues and the clownish chracters sometimes clash. Still, this is what makes the movie so compelling. It marches to its own drum for sure and all the better for it. Good stuff!!!

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Okja

    A unique and original film that makes you wonder why it's taken this long to get such a gripping, emotional film about the highly controversial food industry that wasn't a statistics-based, alarmist documentary. The film's tonal-shifts are admittedly a bit of an issue, but by the end, they largely work themselves out to paint a film that shows the multiple angles and implications of a corporate conglomerate's greed.
