From the director of Snowpiercer comes his latest original feature for Netflix simply titled OKJA. Director Bong Joon-Ho brings back Tilda Swinton whom he worked with on Snowpiercer while studding the cast out with other notable names such as Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Steven Yeun, Devon Bostick, Daniel Henshall, Shirley Henderson, Giancarlo Esposito, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Not only does this film look insanely original, but it looks like it’s going to be one of those films that will shock and awe us into submission with each looming threat of OKJA getting eaten by a bunch of scientists breeding the perfect livestock. It’s a topical idea that will easily produce dividing ideologies, but that’s what makes me so curious about the movie in general. Where is the story going to go? Will it have a dark and disturbing twist like Snowpiercer or will it be the first of Bong Joon-Ho’s films to give a little bit of lightness to it all?
Regardless of whether you eat meat or not, this seems like a film worth checking for the sheer amount of curiosity it creates in you. Netflix seems to be honing in more original films and this could be one of the many movies that leads the way for their brand in becoming somewhat a legitimate studio in the future.
