For those into Korean cinema, Korean SF, or both: Matt’s written up a good post on The Host and the role of symmetry in the film, and linked my posts on the Host (starting here). I’ve commented to expand (slightly) on his observations. Check it out!
As for me, I’m planning on working on a paper on the film and its political elements, somewhat expanding on my observations in the posts I’ve made here, and on the paper I’ll be presenting in a couple of weeks. I’ll be working on that sometime in the next couple of months, time permitting, and towards that goal, I’ll be listening to the [English-language] director’s commentary on the American release.
(I am absolutely not patient enough to listen to the Korean language commentary, not for now anyway, but if I hear anything interesting, I’ll be sure to mention it. As with many films, I’m sure a comparison of the directors’ commentary in the two languages would be quite interesting.)
