    Feels something like progress. A comedy starring a fat woman where we're not laughing at her because she's fat, but laughing at all those around her who think shes worthless because of her weight.

    This film is perfect. Honestly one of the best things I've seen in a long while. Especially for movies that are so focused on narrative. Tarantino likens Bong to Spielberg in the 70s and it's not hard to see why. Bong understands perfectly how to effect the audience. The films is constantly witty in a very visual way and the story fucks with your narrative expectancy. The opening and closing sequences are perfect and abstract in a way that compliments…

    Wow. Possibly even more stylistically impressive than Oldboy. Park plays with your expectations at every turn and handles all the various elements of the story very delicately. No detail or piece of characterization is unimportant to the plot.
