Snowpiercer ★★★★

Violent, intense and really fucking weird. I haven't read the source material but, given how strange and complex the setting of the film is, I think Bong Joon Ho deserves some major credit for making it all fit together seamlessly.

There's some aspects to the film that are hard to swallow but I admire its ambition and unwillingness to sugar-coat how brutal this world is. I'm very curious to see how it's received in the States but I thought it was the best sci-fi action film I've seen in a long time. Here's hoping the U.S. cut is the same as the Korean version (I got to see this in Seoul!).
