Parasite ★★★★★

November 4, 2019 marks a first for me: I watched a movie in theatres twice in a row, as in the screening I came for ended and I literally just couldn’t bring myself to leave the theatre. I had to watch the very next showing of the same film. That’s how remarkable Parasite is - it lives up to every bit of the hype generated by my fellow movie lovers around the world. I’d go so far as to call it the greatest film released in my adult life. This gush will do for now - tomorrow I’ll get up and log my second viewing with a longer reflection on the film. But definitely see it if you haven’t, and I concur with others - AVOID SPOILERS AND EVEN THE TRAILER! I went in 100% cold and it was the way to do it (that’s right - I’ve been liking your Parasite reviews without even reading them lol).

Parasite for Best Picture. (added to 2019 Favorites duh)
