Bong Joon-Ho - Presenting an incompetent police force

Analyze Korean director Bong Joon-Ho’s filmography (specifcally Memories of Murder, The Host, and Mother) and present how he uses visuals, themes, and insertions of comedy and tragedy to show the incompetence of the Korean police force.

  • This is a phenomenal prompt. Deconstructing patriarchal institutions has been a major aspect of modern South Korean cinema, especially as a reaction to the dictatorship of the fifth republic in the 1980's. Someone familiar with Bong Joon Ho's filmography and other benchmark works of Korean cinema could do wonders with this. – PeterThelonious 3 years ago

If the films can survive outside their release era is an interesting way to critique them. It Follows intentionally masked its timeperiod to project that this story is universal outside of societal norms of the time. Stories that rely on tech or a cultural zeitgeist (Unfriended, The Ring) have unconciously instituted a timed decay where an audience will not be able to connect to a characters plight if they cannot relate to the restraints of their ability to survive a situation (cell phone failures, dropped skype calls.)

Babel suffers from confusing intertwining stories with narrative convienience. The two prevalent stories (the local boys hunting with the rifle and a man tending to his wounded wife) is sidetracked by a third storyline thats primary purpose is to spark a connection the audience when the fathers connection to the other two storylines is revealed.
