Parasite ★★★★½

Ranked — 2019
Theater Visits — 2019

It's so deliriously satisfying when a movie that looks this good actually is this good. Parasite is a huge directorial flex from Bong Joon-ho, a comedy of errors that refuses to ever just be one thing. It's a meaty and full-throttled experience: a movie that's unabashedly about what it's about, and wildly entertaining the entire time. The visuals, cast, orchestral score, pacing, and tone are all dialed in just right.

In my theater, an older couple sat to my left, and a group of teenagers sat to my right, and we all loved it equally. Yay, Bong!
