Sure, Bong Joon-ho’s latest film, “Snowpiercer," may not have stood a chance at the box office against the monstrosity that is “Transformers,” but it certainly won the summer in our hearts. As Bong’s comic-book adaptation slowly begins its expansion over the coming weeks, it’s as good a time as any to take a look at the South Korean director’s humble beginnings.

Bong Joon-ho Snowpiercer

Sure, Bong Joon-ho’s latest film, “Snowpiercer," may not have stood a chance at the box office against the monstrosity that is “Transformers,” but it certainly won the summer in our hearts. As Bong’s comic-book adaptation slowly begins its expansion over the coming weeks, it’s as good a time as any to take a look at the South Korean director’s humble beginnings.

The Seventh Art has dug up Bong’s four-part student film, “Incoherence.” The nearly-half-hour 1994 short film finds the “Mother” director beginning to refine his style with his trademark black humor and sudden tonal shifts already bubbling up, as well as some social commentary about moral authority figures.

If you’re one of the lucky few who’ve seen “Snowpiercer” so far, go back to the beginning with “Incoherence” and see where it all started. Watch the episodic film below—the final chapter, which is not embeddable, can be viewed here.
