Films of 2020
Disclaimer: not a lot of cinemas were open in 2020.
Not a lot of cinema visits, then.
Believe the hype. The first 'Best Picture' Academy Award winner in a foreign language is a funny, biting, expertly staged and masterfully told upper class versus lower class pamphlet. Great stuff, Bong.
