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.
One word... AMAZING
Wasn’t what I was expecting. I was entertained and was not expecting the turn the movie took.
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
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.
Just a fun film to watch
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!
Not as dark as the trailer made it seem. I wouldn’t consider it a horror movie. Though it was still very good!
had me at the edge of the seat!!!
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.
Deeper than you can imagine, great production.
MUST SEE THIS WAS SOOO GOOD LIKE LOL THIS WAS CRAZY!
I’m very glad this movie exists
An amazing and original film. Extraordinary in every way and deserves the best reviews from all.
You have to see this movie
Don’t read any reviews. Don’t watch the trailer. Just go and watch it. Trust me!
I came cause of moist meter
Best movie of the year
Wow, that’s all I have to say. This was an incredible movie and I highly recommend it.
I've never seen anything like it and I dont think I'll ever see anything like it ever again.
Do yourself a favor and watch this movie. Truly a masterful work of art.
too much reading
Movie was great storyline was great I really liked the parallels bong joon ho used. I really didn’t expect the movie to be like that mindblown
Strong acting and directing.
i like it clockwise
Some will love it and some will hate it but nobody will forget it.
Would watch again :D
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.
Genreless in all the best ways
the best movie so far. go watch it don't even look at the review. now I know why it won so many oscars
Too long but I was captivated
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.
There were a lot of “yo wtf” moments. Made my heart beat go nuts.
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.
Great movie! Tells an insightful story that makes you stopnand think after watching.
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.
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.
