Perhaps none are as consistently adored as Joon-Ho Bong, whose newest flick, Mother, finally arrives stateside this week after making its debut at Cannes last year. We’ll be taking a look at the new film, as well as looking back at the director’s dual breakthroughs, 2003’s acclaimed Memories of Murder and 2006’s creature feature The Host.

    Little Miss Sunshine meets Godzilla. Lol. Godzilla is not a good fit though.

    Agreed. The ending is sad and great. You’re right, if this was an American film, they would have thrown in antics for the kids.

    Haven’t seen Memories of Murder yet.
