    inherits the strange comedy of other bong joon ho movies and amplifies it to make a charming, fun, and heartbreaking movie. all the characters are lovable/love-to-hateable in their own way, (mija is a wonderful protagonist) and the story's wacky nature adds more to the film's charisma than it detracts from any sort of logic. the corporate/activism plot doesn't hit the moral quite as powerfully as, say, snowpiercer, but its message still comes through resonantly; i kept wishing this was a kid's movie, but i know i wouldn't want to soften the ending's blow. i'm going to pet my dog and go to sleep now
