Parasite ★★★★½

TIFF19 Film #4:

"Parasite" knocked me on me ass. I was expecting this to be great but not this damn good. I don't want to sound like a broken record but going in knowing as little as possible is the best way to watch this. I knew little to nothing and I was shocked at some of the directions it took. But it's also hilarious pretty much from start to finish which is also something that surprised me. Every performance here is gold but Bong Joon-ho is the real star here. His direction and script here are pretty much perfect. This is dark, hilarious, twisted, entertaining and most importantly unpredictable from start to finish. Not sure how I felt about some choices in the third act but this is a must watch.
