Have you seen Bong Joon Ho’s multi-award winning satire? Do you really think you’ve seen it all? The Cannes and Oscar-winning filmmaker revisits his international success to produce a stunning monochrome version. The black and white draws our attention more to the performances, which are roundly excellent. And director Bong’s fascination with subterranean worlds also profits from this new look. Basements offer a wilder contrast between light and dark. And even for those of us who have seen the film and know what lurks down there, a fresh sense of surprise still awaits.
