Parasite ★★★★★

Ignorance is the greatest luxury. Parasite has got to be one of my favorite movie titles ever. I'd forgotten how depressing and disturbing this gets, too. It's really satisfying to catch smaller lines the second time around, like how Mr. Kim's last two jobs folded.

I viewed the black and white version on Criterion's new release. It's gorgeous and adds a lot of emphasis on form and framing, both uneasily rigid and sharp at the Park home, that gradually loosen into the dilapidated lower classes. Of course, I was reminded even more of High and Low with this version.
