Dear Tumblr,
I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
This.
Movie.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like.  He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it:  Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.

mmm the host was great i’d love to see this.

for someone who complained about hollywood only wanting an all-white cast his dystopia sure had a lot of fucking white people in it

Every time I get excited about something on tumblr, I know you’ll be there to bring me down back to Earth.

I wasn’t even tryna like shit on the movie, because I definitely think it is a worthwhile sci-fi film for people to dig into, but it’s nothing revolutionary or earth-shattering and it doesn’t say anything that hasn’t been said. 
it forgoes a lot of the nuance of the comic for graphic ultra-violence and anything the movie has to say about class is more inferred than explicit. 
when I first watched my first comment was “it does what the hunger games tried to do but better” which is true, but that’s still just a little more than the bare minimum. 

That wasn’t a criticism of you, but acknowledgment? That I get super excited about things because of hype, and then I’m disappointed when I find myself nitpicking, and if you’re right about the violence and the way the film handles class, well, I’d rather know that going in so I can just take a step back and enjoy it for what it is.

oh yeah I didn’t think it was, I’ve been wording shit weird tonight, my brain is wrecked from insomnia.but yeah, definitely watch this movie, absolutely try to find a version online with subtitles because there’s a whole chunk of korean dialog that doesn’t get translated which is kind of a bummer to miss
