Karsten Runquist’s review published on Letterboxd:
On my hands and knees BEGGING Bong to make a film with a jazzy score like this again.
Sadly this is definitely the weakest I’ve seen from him. These ideas he throws around in each scene are interesting to watch but they also don’t feel like they’re doing anything some of the time. One of the best things about a Bong Joon-ho film is that you know none of that time will be wasted. But this could have been cut down by 20 minutes and been just as if not more effective in my opinion. I will say, this does a wonderful job at showcasing how precise and efficient Bong is with his visuals.
I think I’ve seen all his films now! At least those I have access too! Yay!
