JUST WATCH IT. It won that prestigious award for a reason.

What an amazing film! The word 'masterpiece' is being thrown around for a very well-deserved reason. I can't wait until I get to see it again. Advice? Don't read a review. Don't watch the trailer. Go in as blind as possible. To be fair, the trailer doesn't give anything away, but it's just best if you know nothing about it.

Fearlessly goes where many movies have already gone. The only original element is that it tries to combine genres. Not a terrible movie but significantly less praiseworthy than the hype would have you believe.

A movie is only as good as it’s story. Parasite is original, fresh, and it is cleverly told. The premise is great and the story never feels like it is being bogged down. Everything makes sense and it even has moments of shock that make the movie gripping. It’s unfortunate that people will naturally skip this movie because of the subtitles, but they are missing out on a well acted, clever story that makes you not care for the two hours of reading.

This movie is a marvel of cinema. The lighting. Set design. Writing. Direction. Acting. There are movies you can’t describe. And you have to experience. Only in the movies. This is one of those rare movies at the ultimate heights of a master director. They rarely make them like this everyone!

Incredibly smart, gripping, funny, and visually stunning. You think you know what twist is coming, but I guarantee you don't. A masterful, shocking, yet somehow still hilarious commentary on inequality and social norms (grounded in issues in South Korea but relatable to anyone) that you will not forget.

Excellent movie. No words can fully describe it. I don’t think I can sincerely recommend it despite my praise. Watch at your own risk, although if you’re more worried about reading subtitles quickly, I’d say they’re well-paced for your convenience.

Parasite, maybe the best film Bong has yet made, begins as a social-realist drama about a poor family struggling to find work in modern-day Seoul. By the end of its brisk two hours and 11 minutes, it will have cycled through black comedy, social satire, suspense, and slapstick.

Parasite is a malign delight from start to finish, with a Machiavellian sense of mischief and a cinematic brio that shows Bong revelling in his Hitchcockian control of somewhat Buñuelian material.

Jonathan Romney

Like much of Bong’s work, Parasite is cumbersomely plotted and heavy-handed in its social commentary. The largely naturalistic treatment here may also alienate some of his fantasy fanboy constituency. That said, this prickly contemporary drama still feels more coherent and tonally assured than Snowpiercer or Okja, and packs a timely punch that will resonate in our financially tough, politically polarized times.
