Christian Alec’s review published on Letterboxd:
I am more overwhelmed with what I have witnessed with Parasite than any more films this year.
I knew nothing going in. No trailers seen, no reviews or synopsis and that's what you need to go into all of this. Parasite crosses many different genres so well, I was fairly confident it was going to go full comedy the entire time until we get to what lurks in the basement. From there, anything can happen and everything does. This film a master class in filmmaking from Bong Joon-ho. From the films I have seen, I know his films are enjoyable and really stretch the imagination. This is a director who just watching this, you know he appreciates cinema of all type. That escape from the house scene is something out of my dreams that is paced so well that my heart was racing hoping things worked out. The audience reaction to this entire story made me appreciate people's love of still seeing foreign films in cinemas! This was sold out!!!
I'm blown away by this entire film. I hope everybody gets a chance to see it and it goes far not only with awards this year, but just film watching in general. It is a downright great piece of cinema. I wish I could go into more details, but that's the brilliant aspect of seeing and enjoying this film.
