bethany’s review published on Letterboxd:
never have i ever been so wrong about what i thought a film was going to be about... my mind is still absolutely blown as i'm writing this two days after my viewing. bong joon-ho completely lures in his audience, making us feel connected to these characters even if we don't have anything in common with them all the way until the very last frame.
it's been quite a while that i've been this enthralled by a film and i can confidently say this is 100%, hands down, no competition the best feature of the year—parasite is a masterclass in direction, editing, acting, cinematography, set design, producing, and just about everything else under the sun. what an outstanding way to end the decade and i absolutely cannot wait to revisit this and see what i missed the first time.
