Right. So, you know, sometimes I think this whole "all men are pigs" thing is a bit overblown, but then a guy freely admits to rape on the air and then all he has to say in his defense is that he's "a bad storyteller". Not even that he was on drugs or drunk when telling the story, or some such. Just that he, somehow, thought it would be a good idea to tell a straight-forward rape story in a podcast. Even assuming this was all an artistic provocation of some sort, what a terrible idea this was?

#Snowpiercer is a weird movie. Bong Joon-ho is a very inconsistent director, and like in Host, there are moments of brilliance here interspersed with facepalm-worthy wtf-ery.

- The story is very simple, simplistic even - though by no means stupid (certainly more complex and smarter than "V for Vendetta"). A linear plot almost by definition. It does get much better in the second half of the movie (and of the train), when the comic book-style visuals and more surreal characters get a chance to shine.

- You can tell the original story must have been a lot more epic in scale and detail - even despite obviously massive cuts, half the dialogue is lengthy exposition. Some crucial characters and events remain unexplained forever, unless I missed something.

- Tilda Swinton's "Thatcher" is glorious.

- D'Artagnan!

- There's a lot of symbolism that's really hard to figure out at times. I think I'll spend the rest of the day trying to get the fish blood scene (which apparently was so important Bong refused to cut it for the US release).

Snowpiercer (or “La Transperceneige”, which is the much stronger-sounding title of the original French graphic novel) is a difficult movie to review. Going by the gut feeling, I’d have to say I enjoyed it a lot. When I left the cinema, I realized I was…
