    after watching and loving parasite, i started to get more interested in director bong joonho’s work so i watched okja today! lol at first i was kinda annoyed because i thought mija was being bratty with that whole smashing the piggy bank thing and rudeness towards her grandpa, but i realize now that she was very emotional. like i would be devastated too if someone took my dog without me knowing. the movie in general was really good. idk if i liked it as much as parasite, but okja was much more emotionally impactful for me. i cried so hard during the abuse scenes, i couldn’t even watch or listen to okja’s cries. i’m still shaken by it as i type this. i’m not joking when i’m say i’m disgusted by the meat production industry. every now and then i’ll go a week or two being vegan, but after this movie, i’ve been considering going vegan for the rest of the year or at least vegetarian

    but yeah, crazy movie - in a good way. seriously loving how much director bong’s movies have been making me think!

    No piece of fiction has yet to affect me in any profound way but to the topic, Okja's fine I think. Not the best of Bong Joon-Ho's work so far in my opinion, it's either Mother or The Host for me for different reasons but a just okay film from him is still far better than a lot of films.
    EDIT: I forgot he also did Memories of Murder. That's a solid one as well. Just don't go expecting a thriller with a clean ending.

    this is no joke but that movie turned me vegetarian three years ago. i cried a whole bunch during it. it's a great movie but i'll never watch it again, it's horrifying.
