Okja (2017) Review


This is the closest thing we'll ever get to a live-action Hayao Miyazaki film.
Sweet, heartwarming, and adventurous Okja is easily Netflix's best film so far. Bong Joon-ho has created something really special here. A tale of a girl and the love she has for her pet. I was sucked in from the start. The tone isn't at all what I was expecting, but it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Okja isn't perfect. It's a tad uneven and messy, but those are minor complaints. Overall all this film is a delight with some powerful messages on display. May I also add this film is visually stunning.
Bong Joon-ho is one of our greatest filmmakers.

Rating: 4.5/5
