Parasite

Parasite ★★★★★

Rewatching this multilayered record-breaking monster of a film in theaters post-Oscar win with a group of occasional movie goers, my mom included, who might’ve not seen it otherwise was a treat. I noticed a few subtleties I didn’t catch the first time and was able to breathe a little knowing where it was headed. I left the theater as I did my first watch, extremely satisfied with the gem I had just seen, but powerless to the realization of what that fourth wall-breaking last shot meant for not only the story and it’s characters but us the viewer as well. My parasitic ass needs a drink.
