Spa Night

Spa Night ★★★½

Found this to be quite mature, especially liked the parents. The kind of filmmaker who makes a lot of choices that go above you. I really loved the warm/cold, tungsten/blue competing hues that we saw in a lot of the spa scenes. The storyboarding/storytelling was fresh enough that this felt like it revitalized the genre a bit. Love seeing an almost entirely asian (not sure if all Korean) cast/crew represented. His breakdown was fantastic but I'm not a fan of the ending; was hoping for not necessarily resolution or closure, but would've appreciated a little more of a nudge re: the relationship with his parents and what his life'll look like, moving forwards, outside of the obvious parallel that he was running, and clearly, moving forward.
