Bong Joon-ho Retrospective
Editor’s Notes: Snowpiercer is open in limited release. Read Daniel’s review (9.0 / 10.0).
Bong Joon-ho is a leading figure of the Korean New Wave and one of the most innovative filmmakers working today. Known for a macabre sense of humor, deft sensibility and social consciousness, he consistently garners excellent reviews and cult praise. Certainly one of the most exciting filmmakers of the past fifteen years, Bong takes the international stage firmly with the release of his newest Snowpiercer, an apocalyptic parable with post-national scope and Hollywood stars. Bong leaves behind the distinctly Korean context within which he defined his first four features and we look back on these remarkable films as he enters the next phase of his prolific career.
