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.
Amazing movie definitely a must see and it was very original with lots of surprises. The cast was incredible too.
Definitely not what I expected but I went in knowing nothing, as suggested, and was not disappointed.
One word... AMAZING
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.
Wow. I did not expect that. This movie was crazy what a story!
had me at the edge of the seat!!!
Just a fun film to watch
There were a lot of “yo wtf” moments. Made my heart beat go nuts.
Super good. Best to go in blind and see it!
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.
best movie of the year, straight original fire
I came cause of moist meter
MUST SEE THIS WAS SOOO GOOD LIKE LOL THIS WAS CRAZY!
An amazing and original film. Extraordinary in every way and deserves the best reviews from all.
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.
too much reading
Wow, that’s all I have to say. This was an incredible movie and I highly recommend it.
Not as dark as the trailer made it seem. I wouldn’t consider it a horror movie. Though it was still very good!
I've never seen anything like it and I dont think I'll ever see anything like it ever again.
crabs in a bucket
the best movie so far. go watch it don't even look at the review. now I know why it won so many oscars
I bit surprising, but with lots of plot twist. Felt a bit longer than 2 hours. I am left with a lot to think about.
Some will love it and some will hate it but nobody will forget it.
SO WICKED I loved it
I’m very glad this movie exists
Strong acting and directing.
Don’t read any reviews. Don’t watch the trailer. Just go and watch it. Trust me!
Genreless in all the best ways
Best movie of the year
WOW... i havent seen a good movie in awhile. definitely wont disappoint you
Very good and surprising. Original movie that lies up to the name.
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!
Do yourself a favor and watch this movie. Truly a masterful work of art.
Great movie! Tells an insightful story that makes you stopnand think after watching.
The best directed movie of the year
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.
