Bong Joon-ho Stany Zjednoczone, 2017

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.
