Okja | Ratings & Reviews

"The pure energy and likability of this film make it such a pleasure."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"You know you’re in a strange territory when Paul Dano gives only the third weirdest performance in a film."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"The picture, which never stops moving, is dense with information and feeling."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"(Okja) showcases Bong’s admirable flair for artfully unhinged spectacle, deftly undercut by a chastening reality check that never allows us to enjoy ourselves too much."

Sight & SoundSight & Sound

"A work of melancholy enchantment, by turns sweet, funny, scary, sad, and—in the manner of all good science fiction movies—thought-provoking."


"Okja is a good film rather than a great one, perhaps lacking the element of surprise that made Snowpiercer such a dream."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Okja fires in a lot of directions, but finds its way to a strong payoff..."


"Visually, this is a classy affair... But the pig-chasing antics and cartoonish corporate nastiness that dominate much of the film become seriously grating."

Time OutTime Out

"A super-pig of a film that is overstuffed almost to the point of nausea."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"As much as Okja has its sobering moments, it’s just as filled with Bong Joon-ho’s characteristically surreal approach to humour..."


"Gyllenhaal’s manic, deeply bitter, sweat-soaked Dr. Johnny (jumps) around like a cross between Steve Irwin and Richard Simmons."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"Bong has rustled up a bubbling pork stew of wildly disparate elements to make a true cinematic original."
