Parasite ★★★★★

throughout the whole film i kept thinking that the scholar's stone was something strange to give away and i felt like there was some symbolism attached to it i had to analyse

after leaving the cinema i got the impression that i hadn't been able to interpret its hidden meaning, so when i got home i started reading about it and turns out the rock was floating in the kims' flooded semi-basement, which implies that it was actually hollow and not only explains why ki-woo survived, but also represents that the dream for social upward mobility is built on empty promises

it's so metaphorical and now i'm even more devastated
