Parasite ★★★★★

i'm so glad i went into this knowing almost nothing and without seeing any of the trailers because this film is INCREDIBLE!! i am OBSESSED!! it is everything cinema wishes it could be!! i would articulate myself properly but i can't right now because my mind is blown

it's SO GOOD how this film balances so many genres at once, it's funny and dark and bleak and thrilling and tense and mysterious, and it switched between these constantly without it ever feeling unnatural

and i love how tight-knit the family unit was and how much you begin to root for them to succeed but you also don't because the other family never did anything wrong to them or did they and it just creates this fascinating push-pull in your mind of who to sympathise with
