Okja

I was very tempted not to watch Okja — I was interested in watching the movie because of the director and the actors involved, but I’m extremely sensitive when it comes to the portrayal of animals in movies (and their bad treatment), and I knew this was probably going to tug at my heartstrings. Having watched it, I think it’s a great movie — there are some really beautiful shots, and so many great characters — but as expected, the overall theme wasn’t something I really wanted to take in, and so I can’t say that I loved watching it.
