Parasite is the best film I’ve seen this year. So far. It’s a complete genre bender that will have you stirred up at the core. It’s the seventh film directed by Joon-ho Bong and undoubtedly his masterpiece. We are introduced to the Kim’s, a poor family of 4 living in modern South Korea. The son, Ki-woo, gets a job opportunity that opens all kinds of doors. Some that were better off staying shut.
Bong has shown incredible talent once again and the cast blew me away. I really want to see Kiang-ho Song get a Best Supporting Actor nomination, because his character made me laugh, cry, and think long after the film ended. In fact, I can’t stop thinking about the film altogether. Everyone was so damn good and it was thrilling as imaginable. There’s so much symbolism in it, that it warrants a second watch. It’s a whirlwind of a film and I can’t recommend it enough.
