Review In A Nutshell:
It is love that allows us to endure through the hardships, giving us a sense of purpose and fulfilment in the clamour for success. When that significant part is stripped from us, our sense of tolerance, reasoning and emotional rigour begins to decay, or in the case of Parasite, erupts. Bong Joon-Ho serves us a family drama that satirises the class divisions of his native country, and in the process allowing us to bear witness to that particular eruption develop and unfold as logic, empathy, and composure begins to disintegrate. It is as shocking as anything that he has previously offered, and arguably as entertaining.
