THE HOST (2006, SOUTH KOREA)
My own personal March movie madness. My goal is make 31 posts in 31 days about 31 movies. They all must be non-U. S. films that I haven’t seen before. Why do I make this stipulation? Don’t know exactly, by we all have to have goals, don’t we?
Day seven, from the Republic of Korea
The Host (2006)
Second South Korean movie in a row. It’s the old dump toxic chemicals down the sink and eventually a mutated creature will arise plot, eh? Well-done and believable creature and the members of the main family in the film are pretty well developed and sympathetic. Interesting that it’s an American’s reckless actions that start the plot in motion. I smell a metaphor!
