From the director of Parasite... that I've yet to see. Not Parasite: Maxim. The other. Though imagine Maxim winning an Oscar too.
This was an interesting movie. Dark humor. A man who's about to become a doctor, who has a falling out with his wife, who's overly annoyed with a dog constantly barking somewhere in their apartment complex, and as the movie begins he attempts to kill it... but it turns out he's taken the wrong dog, and that a janitor eats it before he manages to save it.
One thing leads to another and before you know it the real dog is dead. But then his wife gets a dog.
It's nicely filmed. Artsy sometimes. Comedy by absurdity, but not always a kind you can laugh at. The smokescreen scene in particular felt special, and when it's over you're left smiling but... a little bewildered. What was this all about after all. Acceptance? Anti dog eating culture in Korea? A lesbian couple? That dogs save marriages/doctorates/whatever?
I don't fully understand, but I think it'll leave a mark. And they tell good stories. Signs of a good film. Compelling narrative. Uncertain but good watch.
I'm definitely watching Parasite too now.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
This was pretty damn interesting. And yet, nobody's spoken! Be the first!
