Parasite ★★★★½

No Strings Attached: A Continuing List of Cherished Favorites

The Year is 2019: Ranked and (Possibly) Reviewed

An invigorating feast of black humor, societal drama, and sudden excitement, Bong Joon-ho's Parasite does all three with a pretty fucking masterful approach. A second watch proved again how easy it is to get swept up in this film's story-telling—interesting symbolism and arcs reach full circle—along with the attention to crafting such a delectable premise that features two families of opposite lifestyles, each with their own exceptional performance. This really is one perfect film to witness knowing nothing about its plot. Just know it's from the mind of Joon-ho and you're bound to expect the unexpected.

4.6/5
