Barking Dogs Never Bite
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Bong Joon Ho, Bong Joon Ho
2000 / 110min / 35mm
Bong’s debut feature is the work of a preternaturally talented filmmaker already in full command of his medium—and alert to the issues of economic and class disparity that he would continue to explore in works like 2019’s Parasite. The darkly comic, melancholy, and deeply disquieting story of a young graduate student, henpecked into submission by his pregnant wife, whose annoyance with the ambient noise of a barking dog in his neighborhood drives him to desperate extremes, Barking Dogs Never Bite marks the auspicious opening of an extraordinary career.
