Parasite ★★★★½

I knew absolutely nothing about this film going in except that Bong Joon-ho directed it and it won the Palme d’Or and I’m kinda glad about that because nothing could’ve prepared me for the rollercoaster this was. It’s both hilarious and more anxiety-inducing than many horror films I’ve seen. I’ve been a fan of Bong’s darkly comedic, completely unsubtle social commentaries for a while now but this is him at the top of his game. I had no idea where this was going but I’m so satisfied. Loved it.
