Parasite ★★★★½

Bong Joon-ho's filmic war on capitalism and classism rages on bloody and stunning in Parasite. Following a poor Korean family as they each con their way into working for the same upper-class family household, the stark class contrast of each family's home lives twists and unravels beneath the careful gaze of Joon-ho's trademark vibrant cinematography. Some sequences are so elegant, so meticulously curated with shots and production design radiating the film's complex themes so seemingly effortlessly they're simply unforgettable. With sharp performances that are at once harrowing and hilarious, and a third act as outrageous as it is cathartic, Parasite is worthy of better phrased praise than anything I could write here.
