Flicks Top 10 Films of 2019
Bong Joon Ho’s Cannes Palme D’Or winner is the second Korean movie in consecutive years that makes our Top 10 (in 2018 it was Lee Chang Dong’s stunning Burning). This brilliant and inventive satire feels like a definitive statement on the emptiness and superficiality of modern middle-class life. Performance, score, cinematography, and direction are all first-rate. The most successful Cannes winner ever. The ace tagline, 'Act like you own the place', sums it up neatly indeed!
