Parasite (2019)

Finally watched the film that won so many awards and rightfully so! Brilliant writing and performances make a nuanced viewing experience.

The film starts with a simple premise, which slowly turns into a social commentary. Subtle differences in class, lifestyle, taking advantage of the naive or the trusting, turns characters greedy, manipulative and ruthless.

What we witness in the climax is unexpected and shows the extent to which prejudice and the fight to survive can affect the human psyche.

Stellar direction by Bong Joon-ho and a must watch!

4/5
