Issac’s review published on Letterboxd:
That peach scene alone is perfect enough to earn every award out there.
Everything in this film is so well thought out. It’s all perfectly structured from the production design to the dialogue, all of it is crucial to the story and the attention to detail is insane. the whole Parasite team deserves to win it all, I just wish the cast got their acting nominations but we all know Oscars are great with their snubs. However for Bong Joon-Ho, he deserves all the recognition he’s getting.
I had high expectations but at the same time, I had no idea what to expect and wow, i was not let down at all. It was a fun ride and I was hooked from beginning to end. There’s lots of funny moments but as well as intense scenes. It was a perfect balance and all of it was directed so well. This is a film I’ll be thinking about for a while. I haven’t seen a few of the other best picture nominees so we’ll see if my mind changes but as of right now, Parasite is my top pick for winning that best picture.
