Korea Submits 'Mother'

By Chase Kahn

Korea's official Best Foreign Language Oscar submission will be Bong Joon-Ho's Mother -- edging out Park Chan-Wook's Thirst, a perverse, erotic, sexually gratuitous, but by all reports, pretty damn good vampire film.

I haven't seen either yet, but Thirst should be playing at a theater near you by the end of August.

By the way, I absolutely dig this poster art for Bong Joon-Ho's Mother, we need more like this, please:

  1. The plus of having films become Oscar Contenders so early is that it gives everyone time to see them. The downside is it doesn't allow the entire year to play out and you end up with lots of great films not getting their shot because they don't come out in time.
