I saw Bong Joon-Ho's "Mother" last night at the Lyric Cinema Cafe in Fort Collins. The style, theme, and humor are similar to his "The Host" and "Memories of Murder".

They're all awesome. "Memories of Murder" should have been on at least one major critic's best-of-decade list, but perhaps it was elided because Bong plays with genre too much to be considered alongside the directors of consistently sublime movies like "Syndromes and a Century" or "Yi Yi". In any case, if you like yourself some Asian cinema, watch "The Host", "Memories of Murder", and "Mother" (in order of accessibility).
