"South Korean director Bong Joon-ho, perhaps best known for the 2006 monster movie THE HOST, uses genre, with fantastical distortions, to comment upon social ills. SNOWPIERCER, co-written with Kelly Masterson, combines the outlandish disaster/thriller movie setup, akin to those seen in such 1970s films as THE CASSANDRA CROSSING or THE TOWERING INFERNO, with the recent vogue for apocalypse plotlines. Here the survivors of climate change circumnavigate a frozen planet in the cars of a ceaseless train. A perversion of the railway's original function to bring civilization to remote areas, the Snowpiercer is a self-contained society hurtling through desolation. As the train speeds along its course, the negative effects of an imposed infrastructure corrode from within, leading everyone towards inevitable catastrophe. Tilda Swinton stars in one of her most unforgettable roles." –Rebecca Cleman
