Bong Joon-Ho Collection

Overview

As one of the most universally beloved and the most fiscally successful Korean director of the early 21st century (his horror outing The Host] set records that still haven't been topped), Bon g Joon-Ho also checks in as wildly, brilliantly eccentric and offbeat.

Overview

As one of the most universally beloved and the most fiscally successful Korean director of the early 21st century (his horror outing The Host] set records that still haven't been topped), Bon g Joon-Ho also checks in as wildly, brilliantly eccentric and offbeat. As many critics have observed time and again, his films have a way of both slipping effortlessly in-between genres, and snaking off in the most unpredictable of narrative directions. This collection presents three of Joon-Ho's features. The 2009 Mother presents a quirky murder mystery about a diabolical mother with an unhealthy degree of attachment to her nimble-brained son; The Host (2006) - presented here in a special collector's edition - tells of a giant amphibious creature that turns up in the Han River and begins devouring humans; and Joon-Ho's debut feature, the wicked black comedy Barking Dogs Never Bite (2000), tells of a man driven around the bend by his pregnant wife's nagging and the yammering of a local pooch - so driven that he resorts to canine murders to get some peace and quiet.
