Parasite ★★★½

Body odor class warfare. The high class house is a film stage where social tension is acted in a series of seen/unseen gestures. Privilege is a matter of who is allowed to do either. Smell is key because it can’t be play acted in the social theatre. Our daily horror is becoming a ghost. As often with Bong what is so effective is how everything is build into the film machinery as cinema apparatus is just another instance of the same system.
