Parasite ★★★★½

I had no idea what to expect from this movie and was more than pleasantly surprised. I thought it might be a zombie film or something more horror based. However, it starts out more like an episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (if the gang could ever successfully pull off on their schemes) and finishes like a Jordan Peele movie. It's so incredibly fun, refreshing, and surprising. I described it to a friend as a very Eastern movie dealing with very Western themes: themes of class, society, the American dream etc.

My biggest issue was I felt very conflicted at the end specifically in regards to the character we cut to black on. I didn't necessarily feel sorry for him, but I certainly wasn't happy for him either. I guess it just warrants a re-watch someday.
