    Okja

    ★★★½

    I guess I'm too much of an old cynic to be really moved by Okja, but I'm not callous enough to deny that the film's message is a worthy reminder of how inhuman humans can be.

    I was impressed by the convincing CGI, particularly the realism of the interactions between the computer-generated creature and its environment.
