Episode 60 – Bong Joon-ho’s Barking Dogs Never Bite (2000)

Pot of radishes, dog, shadow man.

Bong Joon-ho’s 2000 feature film debut, Barking Dogs Never Bite, is a master class in dark comedy. It begins with a barking dog, ends with a professorship bought with cash in a cake box, and in between includes sun-dried radishes, a shadow man in a basement, a high-speed chase through an apartment complex, and two murdered dogs. It’s funny and tragic and surprising and stirring. We watched it on a DVD that came in the mail. O, those year 2000 days.
