PARASITE (2019)

Bong Joon Ho (OKJA, SNOWPIERCER) is one of those directors whose projects vary so wildly from one another as well as within their own runtimes that it’s a disservice to try and say something like “oh, it’s a social commentary con-artist movie comedy thriller I guess?”

Every film of his is its own rollercoaster through genre, tone and style and 2019 Palm d’Or winner PARASITE is probably the very best example — having just stepped out of it I’m at a loss to describe it in any way meaningful beyond a very strong recommendation and that this would have to be his best film in a cadre of great films.

I skipped the trailer, you should too, just go in for a wonderful, hilarious, dark ride.
