Oscar winning director Bong Joon-ho gets a 6-film, 7-disc release in this beautifully illustrated boxset that includes bonus content and postcards.
Of course, Asian film fans will have long known of Bong Joon-ho's films with Memories of Murder and The Host firmly in any list of best Korean movies to watch.
This collection from the acclaimed South Korean director tracks the trajectory of his impressive and successful career. It includes his first feature Barking Dogs Never Bite (2000), which garnered a cult following before achieving critical acclaim and commercial success with his subsequent three films, also included in the boxset: the subversive and darkly comic crime thriller Memories of Murder (2003), his breakout monster film The Host (2006) and his first majority-English language film, the sci-fi action thriller Snowpiercer (2013), starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton and Ed Harris. And of course, no Bong Joon Ho boxset would be complete without the BAFTA and Oscar Award-winning Parasite (2020) which took the world by storm becoming the first non-English language film ever to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
Parasite was originally intended to be a black and white feature and Parasite Black and White Version (2020) is included as well in this set, as well as a raft of Parasite extra features.
