Directed by Bong Joon-Ho
Bong Joon-ho is one of the most dynamic and intelligent filmmakers currently working today. He just has complete control over cinema as a medium, and is always willing to go just an extra screw looser. Snowpiercer was a brilliant exercise in thrilling filmmaking with equal parts brain and muscle. It’s one of those films that you have no idea where it’ll go next but by god you just can’t wait to find out. The film continued to explore new territory both visually and tonally – and it’s fantastic to see that Bong’s sense of humour hasn’t been lost in his first English-language film. I’m so glad films like this exist.
