(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)
Bong Joon-ho‘s Parasite broke streaming records when it hit Hulu last week, making it just the latest achievement the blackly comic thriller has notched since won the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2019, culminating in this year’s historic Best Picture win at the Oscars.
But while Hulu proudly touts its new crown jewel, three other Bong Joon-ho films quietly slipped onto the streaming service on the same week — one of which was never available on a streaming platform until now. Bong’s 2006 blockbuster hit The Host, his quietly devastating crime drama Mother, and his electric debut film Barking Dogs Never Bite were also made available on Hulu.
