Okja ★★★★

Oh geez...what a film...the young star fits all of the requirements of a young and petite and Korean young peasant girl that lives in the mountains. Everyone plays their parts well. Swinton is of course commanding and Gyllenhaal appears to do what he is supposed to do and I am not sure that is enough. But that feels like it is more an issue of the writing than the performance although everyone goes ALL IN. As for Okja, I found that I was convinced he was real and the animal cruelty sounds are pretty horrific. This film reminded me of Snowpiercer and its moments of let down were similar. That is still an endorsement, I'm just saying it's not like Parasite.
