Sea Fog is Brilliant

I went into this blind and didn't know about the director, the writer or even the fact that it was produced by Bong Joon Ho himself.

I had book marked it probably cuz of Han Yeri as whatever few drama/film I had seen of her, she was pretty great in the acting and general emoting.

The movie if you don't know too much about it gives a disaster movie vibe as the setting is very much that.

However the movie takes a dark turn midway and hits all the boxes of a fantastic film. Specially how information is conveyed or rather not conveyed. The most pivotal part of the movie just happens before you know it and all you get to see is the aftermath.

The movie also taps into the psyche of the crew here. Although going any further would mean spoilers. So I'll hold off.

There are a few sexual scenes but not much is visible but definitely not something you would wanna see with your parents or kids around (or maybe you do)

The characters are rough and swear like sailors, and that's cuz they are.. well, sailors.

If you like your polished and cherry on top movie, you could maybe avoid this. But that doesn't mean the film is dark for the sake of being dark. A lot of it is decently profound and also inspired by real life events(some of it)

Oh also apparently a k-pop idol has a sex scene in it which made all the braindead stans give bad reviews to this film. I reckon that was a bigger tragedy to witness than what happens in the film.

Anyway. Watch it
It's good.

현실적이고 끔찍한 영화

안녕하세요! 이 영화는 한국의 어두운 영화 중 하나입니다. 영화에서 나를 놀라게 한 것은 아무것도 없었다. 흥미롭고 흥미진진 했지만 예상 가능한 일이었습니다. 영화에서 내 눈길을 끈 것은 사람들의 집착이었다. 또는 그 종속성. 누군가의 여자, 누군가의 배, 누군가의 사랑에 빠진 여자. 사람들은 자신이 집착하는 것을 달성하기 위해 죽음의 위험을 감수할 수도 있습니다. 영화를 보면서 이런 생각을 했습니다. 왜 동식 같은 사람이 그 역겨운 사람들과 같은 배에 탔을까? 전부는 아니지만 몇 명은 나를 화나게 했다.
