Parasite ★★★★★

Saw it again on Sunday. The two screenings I went to were the best theater experiences I've had in so long because everyone reacted very strongly and very often. The editing really is so deft and maximizes the effect of every single beat that you can't help but vocally respond.

This screening had a Q&A with Bong Joon-ho, Song Kang-ho, and Park So-dam and I have to be real..... I have never been as starstruck as I was when I saw Song Kang-ho in front of me. He's without a doubt one of the greatest working actors and I have loved him in every single movie I've seen him in. He's just unreal, but I saw him and he WAS real and so engaging and funny. One of his first comments was, "I will never make another movie with rain." Then a second later he added, "And I will never make another movie with that many stairs." It's clear that he and Bong have been friends for a long time because they shot back at each other so quickly and easily, I feel extremely lucky for having the opportunity to witness it.
