With Parasite nonetheless on my thoughts, I made a decision to return and rewatch Snowpiercer the opposite week since each Bong Joon-ho films cope with such related themes round class. Snowpiercer, clearly, does it in a way more action-packed approach, however the massive image may be very a lot the identical: an higher class surviving off of a decrease class, who slowly combat their approach up.
Probably the most enjoyable factor about Snowpiercer is one thing I really want it did extra of: constructing such good, unusual, self-contained worlds inside every automotive. Those that Bong focuses on really feel so vibrant and full. You actually get an understanding of who lives in every automotive and the tradition they’ve created for it. However because the film goes on, it rushes by so a lot of them, and I want there was extra time to linger.
What I believe actually holds Snowpiercer again, although, is the shortage of a major character. Positive, we have now Chris Evans main us by the movie… however who’s he? What does he need? Why ought to we care? He has no traits aside from being a frontrunner — at the least till close to the tip of the movie, when he’s given a lengthy monologue about his previous that, in a worse film, could be well-known for a way laughably dangerous it’s. The character works nicely sufficient to get us to the entrance of the practice, however not sufficient to attach us to the movie’s message in the best way that the members of the family in Parasite do.
