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.

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.
