I swear there's a part in this movie where I was just smiling and being happy with this guy's W.
Then the movie reminded me why it's directed by Asghar Fahardi cause I was just cringing uncomfortably until it ended.
I think everyone can relate to the feeling of hearing a good joke but not laughing despite finding it funny. That is the feeling I got after watching this movie. Now does that make it less effective as a comedy? I don't think so. I still appreciate the hilarity of this movie and how visually pleasing it is. I also feel like I will have a blast on a rewatch.
Also the Coca-Cola joke made me chuckle and I find it funnier the more it cross my mind.
I'd like to think that I'm desensitized to movie gore by now, but damn some of the dog scenes here still made me cringe a bit. They better got paid good.
Still an excellent effort that exudes the energy that Bong Joon-Ho brought us with his later films. While a lot of the film's charms relied on the director's tricks and pans and zooms and slow-mos, the overall premise kept the whole thing interesting.
