Okja 2017

Watched 6 August 2017

Bong Joon-ho cementing himself as one of my favourite living directors.

Even though this film shows its influences very clearly (Spielberg, Zemeckis, Miyazaki), Bong imbues it with his own brand of weird to deliver an exceptionally surprising and endearing film, with brilliantly fleshed-out characters. Okja hits all the notes it reaches for, and then some.
