Everything from the brilliant acting, the masterful directing, the witty writing, the mesmerizing music, the breathtaking cinematography, the sharp editing. All those elements fit so perfectly into one another to create this cinematic ballet about social inequality and the class structure.

    Bong Joon Ho has cemented himself as one of the top filmmakers in recent history and also my favorite director of all time. He is a master of his craft and his…
