We don't throw the word 'masterpiece' around much, but I feel very comfortable labeling Bong Joon Ho's Snowpiercer just that. At the very least, it's the perfect art-house genre film in that it's consistently provocative while being also consistently entertaining. The performances are strong, the action is tight, the concept is compelling and the allegory is timely. [Continue reading]
