Bong’s third film not only cemented his success in South Korea (the first local film to beat out Hollywood to top the box-office), but secured a reputation as a globally essential director. Intimately observing a dysfunctional family forced to reunite and fend off a creature born from a polluted Han River, this monster-movie epic was notable for its darkly comic atmosphere, supporting a critical eye toward the US’s presence in the Korean Peninsula.
