Bong Joon-ho Coreea de Sud, 2000

Ghostman's rating of the film Barking Dogs Never Bite

Bong affirms himself as a great filmmaker right from the get go with his 1st feature film. All of his pet themes & motifs are here; biting commentary on the bourgeoisie, empathy for the working classes, sympathy for animals & the environment, a healthy distrust of government, a mockery of the media, disdain for the corporations, scorn for capitalism, all culminating in a rare anarchist worldview. Ho is great!
