Okja (2017)

Director: Bong Joon-Ho. Cast: Seo-Hyun Ahn, Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Giancarlo Esposito, Jake Gyllenhaal, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins. 121 min. Sci-fi/Adventure. South Korea/USA.

It's a Bong Joon-ho movie (you know, this and this), so you're expecting something magnificent. And again, magnificent happens. You have the superb Tilda Swinton (in two roles), an evil conglomerate trying the feed the world in devious ways, a "good" PETA-like secret opposition who are well-aware of their own hypocritical philosophy, heart-pounding action sequences, and finally, a young innocent girl trying to help her huge pet escape the authorities, à la E.T. What else could you ask for? Not as deep as Snowpiercer, but one helluva ride.

PS: Yeeaaaah! Glenn is back!

PPS: Netflix-produced. Available on Netflix.
