Apologies for my slackness of late, but its been a hectic week.
I went to the fantastic Ultraculture cinema on Wednesday, where Bong Joon-Ho’s latest flick, Mother made an appearance. It was an entertaining little whodunit, a much subtler affair than Bong’s previous flick The Host, and a film which I enjoyed very much. I’m not sure quite where the Hitchcock comparisons stem from (aside from maybe a few musical cues), as the entire focus of the film works in a manner very dissimilar from the work of Hitch, but as an off-kilter, psychodrama Mother proved a success, with a killer climax.
The chaotic, circus like atmosphere in which the film was presented in via Ultraculture was great, providing a genuinely refreshing cinematic experience. Next months should be truly spectacular, with a film that, from the promotional material thus far released at least, would appear to compliment the tone of the evening perfectly. Check out Ultraculture’s website in the next week or so for the reveal of said title.
