Description

Meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki Woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heartwrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

  • Gorgeously Shot

    The story/script is superb and has already been said countless times 5* there. What might not get mentioned is the cinemotography. Shot mostly indoors yet each shot feels weighty with purpose and intent. I see myself seeing this multiple times to absorb it all in. Get it now.
  • Great movie!

    The story is incredibly intricate. I found myself becoming friends with the characters becoming the villains. So much to think about after the movie. Highly recommend.

    Truly one of the best films of the year, if not the entire decade. The camera work, the subtle details, the pace, the metaphors. The movie is spectacular in that it merges so many different movie genres and does so gracefully. A movie that defines the social class disparity of today.
  • Wow!

    I won’t be going into any plot details as everyone should go into this movie knowing as little as possible about the story. This film defies categorization, expertly balancing multiple genres, as it tells a story that transcends cultures. The cinematography is rich yet economical. There isn’t a wasted shot, every frame telling a story, furthering the themes. Thought provoking, at times hilarious, and always entertaining, don’t be scared off by the subtitles, this film is well worth it.
