Chris Simons’s review published on Letterboxd:
When I first saw Get Out in theaters in 2017, my younger brother said "that was lit as fuck!" I feel pretty confident saying Parasite is this year's Get Out.
Guys! Great news! Comedy translates! Thrills translate! Memorable moments translate! I want this on Blu-Ray! Give it to me now!
On top of plot and technical craftsmanship, Parasite can also affect you in ways that make you think. Themes on classism, ignorance, and racism are the reason I'll need some time for this movie to infest my mind and reflect on my choices and my place in this world.
I have lived in a bubble nearly my whole life. The bubble is safe and brings little to no unnecessary stress. I have been lucky with where I have landed in my life, regardless of the effort I put in. But that doesn't mean I can't take this luck and do something with it for others. I have been selfish. Maybe some more balance is required in my life, because the luck is not equal.
