You may have heard some buzz about “Parasite,” the film released earlier this year by acclaimed South Korean director Bong Joon-ho that won the Palme d’Or at Cannes. It’s on many “Best films of 2019” lists.
I’m here to tell you: Yes, it’s that good.
You should watch it.
I loved one of Bong’s earlier films, the post-apocalyptic “Snowpiercer.”
“Parasite” is a comedic thriller about…well, lots of things. Class, wealth, society, family, fortune, secrets. Especially secrets.
Not only is the plot deliciously surprising, but the cinematography is gorgeous.
And unlike many modern films, it’s not inordinately long, running just over two hours, and is perfectly paced. Highly recommended. In theaters now.
