I'm gonna be honest with you, watching a movie about a little girl and her big animal isn’t usually my idea of a good time, but I had to give Okja a chance, mainly because it was made by Bong Joon-ho, and since I know he’s capable of awesome thrillers such as The Host and Mother, plus with a bunch of actors that I love are in the cast, I had faith in him bringing something interesting to the story that sounds just like vegan propaganda and a Free Willy mix. Fortunately I was very wrong … well actually
The real question after watching a movie like this is: will Okja turn you vegetarian? Hell no, but it sure will make you think about it, especially after discovering that animals get shot in the head, not to kill them mind you, just to scramble their brain before getting slaughtered and the anuses are used for hot dogs. Yikes!
Life can be hard at the top of the food chain.
