While waiting for a friend to arrive in order to watch Scream I decided to see what else Paramount+ had available and decided to rewatch Snowpiercer.
I tend to enjoy shows and movies that have a big constraint on location and setting. This movie entirely taking place on a futuristic train that houses all that remains of humanity is a great setup. We all know that Bong Joon Ho went on to make Parasite and you can already see his knack for reveals and suspense. His payoffs at the end of both films are really satisfying and the writing is truly great in both.
There’s a lot I feel like I’m missing in Snowpiercer but I’m not sure I’m going to rewatch this film enough times to understand it all. Watching it post 2020 definitly brings up different feelings than my last watch. My belief that humanity wouldn’t go along with horrible events has been shattered and this movie plays into that a bit.
Totally recommended for everyone at some point. Great film with good performances, great writing and a really great (and unique) sci-fi setting.
