Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Okja (2017)

Jay: He still hasn't eaten anything?
Blond: No, he's, uh... still trying to leave the
smallest footprint on the planet that he can.
Silver: All food production is exploitative.
Blond: Try this.
Silver: Mmm-mmm.
Blond: Come on. It's just a tomato.
Silver: Ripened in ethylene gas. Transported in trucks.
Jay: I admire your conviction, Silver,
but your pallid complexion concerns me.

Y'all have picked up your blu-rays of Okja from Criterion already right? It hit disc last week and Amazon has got both the normal edition and the 4K on half-price sale right now so you really have no excuse! I haven't seen this movie since it came out but I've been dying to revisit -- I actually meant to watch my copy of it this past weekend but I somehow got dragged into a bunch of junky Norman J. Warren movies instead for some weird reason. (Terror though was a damn trip!) May Jake forgive me!

One of those movies that falls into the category of-extremely flawed but absolutely loveable. At least for me.

I loved this film. It was so fun and creative.
