                                                                                                                                                                In 2007 I saw Joon Ho Bong's The Host and it blew me away, and it is a kaiju that truly gets better each time you see it. So i checked out his other films, all were very different, but then along came Snowpiercer, and holy fuck, that is a masterpiece of comic book/sci fi cinema in the last decade. I became super stoked for Okja, and the film does not disappoint. Great acting from Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, and the lead, Seo Hyun Ahn, but the scenes are stolen by Jake Gyllenhaal, he is fantastic in this as the charismatic villain. ALl the notes are hit, it pulls at the heart strings, it has awe & wonder, it makes you think, and it is super stylish, and very fucking cool.
