Collapse South Korean Style
« on: December 02, 2019, 09:12:38 AM »
I try not to look , but it's everywhere. I'm not a Korea-phile, but their cinema is pretty political. I was dragged to this art house movie, which won at Cannes.

It's....Kafka-esque...that's how I'd put it. It has to do with the rampant inequality between those who have become rich on foreign trade, and ordinary people who can't make it anymore.

Called "The Parasite" , it's showing at a theater near you. Anybody seen this? It's disturbing.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
