Atom User Reviews for Parasite
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.
very authentic way of korean movies to create the story line, super intense and clever!
A much superior film to Jordan Peele's Us.
Definitely not what I expected but I went in knowing nothing, as suggested, and was not disappointed.
Amazing movie definitely a must see and it was very original with lots of surprises. The cast was incredible too.
If you like Snowpiercer and the host 2006 monster movie you will be surprise and how good the movie is and is it going to win the best picture Oscar maybe
Wasn’t what I was expecting. I was entertained and was not expecting the turn the movie took.
One word... AMAZING
Very cleverly done and so amazing. Def recommend
WOW... i havent seen a good movie in awhile. definitely wont disappoint you
If you like the joker or want to see an international film this would be a great option. This film make you think and definitely a rewatch.
The first part is the best, then goes off the rails.
There were a lot of “yo wtf” moments. Made my heart beat go nuts.
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.
The reviews are right.
Honestly, one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. The cinematography is top notch which really sets the film up for success. The acting was also superb.
So good, yet so sad. 😣
Easily one of the best movies ever made. Period.
This is definitely my favorite movie of 2019.
Just an amazing film that captivates you with its tension and great filmmaking. But, ahy did they market this as a horror movie?
crabs in a bucket
had me at the edge of the seat!!!
Super good. Best to go in blind and see it!
Just a fun film to watch
Wasn't sure what to expect, other than lots of reading (subtitles). But started out with lots of weird situational humor and. Then took off like a crazy wild roller-coaster. The ending got dark fast and was quite a twist. I'd recommend this movie to all.
Wow. I did not expect that. This movie was crazy what a story!
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 pretty well made. It left me feeling off at the end. Overall a great movie.
I came cause of moist meter
SO WICKED I loved it
best movie of the year, straight original fire
An amazing and original film. Extraordinary in every way and deserves the best reviews from all.
too much reading
Not as dark as the trailer made it seem. I wouldn’t consider it a horror movie. Though it was still very good!
Wow, that’s all I have to say. This was an incredible movie and I highly recommend it.
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!
Genreless in all the best ways
I’m very glad this movie exists
the best movie so far. go watch it don't even look at the review. now I know why it won so many oscars
Deeper than you can imagine, great production.
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.
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.
