Parasite ★★★★½

You will gain the greatest treasures from Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite by knowing as little as possible about it. All you need to know is that it is really, really fantastic. Brilliantly acted by a tremendous cast, stylishly shot, it traverses different tones and genres expertly, managing to be funny, to be scabrous, to be socially conscious, even to be scary when needed. A fantastic film about the chasm between the rich and the poor, the haves and the have-nots; Bong Joon Ho directs with a playful evanescence, delighting in continually keeping the audience off kilter. A truly original film that knocked t socks off.
