Barking Dogs Never Bite
(2000) Directed by Bong Joon-ho
In his debut feature, director Bong Joon-ho (The Host) amps up the dark comedy to wickedly probe the weak spots in the social contract. A tale of what happens when good neighbots go bad, the film turns on a college lecturer driven to extremes by a yapping dog on his street. Pet lovers be warned: This satire has serious bite.
