    For some reason I wasn't sure how much I liked this film the first time I watched it back in 2014. Not sure what I was thinking then. I certainly got a lot more out of it the second time around. There are so many details to notice.  I also didn't have much context, as somehow at the time I hadn't seen any of Bong Joon-Ho's other films. Now that more people know about him, and the fact that "late capitalist hellscape" became a common phrase used in 2020, I sure hope that more people will appreciate this incredible and wildly entertaining film.
