Parasite ★★★★½

Parasite continues Bong Joon-Ho's discussion of class consciousness with his signature blend of dark humour, madcap madness, and heart. It is a beautiful film to look at, the performances are all around great, and the soundtrack is a miracle of sorts (as it manages to not only match the ever shifting tone of the script but also to completely bring the audience along and allow them to fully inhabit the wide range of emotional states). Parasite is the full cinematic experience - it will make you laugh, disturb you, and make you think about life as only the most effective satire can. Even though you have probably heard a lot of hyperbolic things by this point, do not be daunted, as Parasite will not disappoint.
