    Finally, my top film of 2020 and it feels like so long ago is Bong Joon Ho’s socio-political, dark comedy masterpiece Parasite.

Bong Joon Ho’s masterpiece is as impeccably designed and structured as the Park’s dream home. Much like his previous works, Bong Joon Ho provides commentary on the current state of affairs at the time. His views on social and class divide have been a constant source of storytelling and…
