wow... what a movie. gorgeously shot, amazing score, incredible script, acting, & direction. Bong Joon-ho is clearly in complete/masterful control of his craft.
the more i think about how earnestly & uniquely Joon-ho explored the wealth gap, the more im in awe. i keep thinking about a specific moment where the main characters have a fleeting taste of a life they yearn & have infiltrated. its no coincidence the entire movie pivots on this scene. the wealth gap is less like the wealthy family’s living room glass wall & more like the infinitely steep, concrete covered, gutter filled hill that seperates the two homes.
