Parasite ★★★★★

Money makes monsters of us all. The desperation to obtain it. The fear of losing it. The resentment that comes with not having it. The false sense of superiority created by having it. It eats away at us all. Like one of those... what do you call em? Those small organisms that latch onto hosts and feed on them? One of of those things.

Bong Joon-ho has crafted a piece of cinema so devilshly entertaining in its macabre humor it could make Polanski blush. So playful in its image-making it might make Hitchcock jealous. So adept in its sudden shifts in tone Tarantino might as well just retire. Loaded with enough genuinely surprising, yet seemingly inevitable, narrative twists to make M. Night Shyamalan want to blow his brains out.

AM I COMING ACROSS ENTHUSIASTIC ENOUGH FOR YOU, LETTERBOXD?

Best movie of the year. Best movie in several years.
