Parasite ★★★★★

My friend told me this movie was "about people who fold pizza boxes." And you know what? He's not wrong.

Best of the year. Absolutely psycho in every way and piercing in its social commentary. Parasite is one of those movies with a fantastic, 100% A+ plot, and yet the plot still isn't even the most important or best part. I was totally enthralled by the storyline and its thrills but also by the class conflict and analysis. (They blur heavily). I will wait to give my neo-Marxist reading of it until more have seen it, but definitely as you watch Parasite, look for the economic/class angle. Even if you totally miss that angle (like both my friends did), the story and cinematography and pacing and etc. are enough to earn it five stars. There was not a moment I could look away.
