The Crime Club convenes to discuss the South Korean thriller Mother.
In a word – Wow!
Director Bong Joon-ho is known for movies like Parasite, Snowpiercer, and The Host, but it seems like everyone (including yours truly) has slept on this one. It’s a terrific thriller that follows a distraught mother’s attempts to prove the innocence of her son, a young man with mental disabilities charged with murder. It’s also a fascinating exploration of the depths of a mother’s love.
It culminates in a Holy Shit turn I did not see coming. The viewer’s blindspots parallel those of the mother’s who pursues her investigation with single focus and dogged determination.
Finally, the mother’s meeting with Crazy JP has to be one of the most heartbreaking moments ever committed to film.
My favorite #CrimeClub selection to date.
