Bong Joon Ho on The Housemaid

Prepare yourself for The Housemaid. Available in our new collector’s set Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Project, Kim Ki-young’s twisted little tale, about a bourgeois family whose lives are thrown into dangerous disarray by the arrival of a live-in domestic, throws viewers for a loop with its feverish intensity and over-the-top plot turns. To learn more about this wild ride of a movie, we turned to someone who knows a thing or two about South Korean cinema: Bong Joon Ho, the director of cult hits The Host and Mother. In this excerpt from our interview, available in the release, Bong explains how Kim’s film is a ripped-from-the-headlines horror movie with a lot to say about class in sixties South Korea.
