Parasite ★★★★★

There's a lot that I feel like I can ramble on about in regards to what Bong Joon-ho achieves with Parasite after having already seen the film a total of six times at this point, but I feel like I'd only be repeating myself or whatever other people have already said better.

But I think it's a testament to how great a film Bong Joon-ho has made when you're already considering how accessible it is, even to audiences that wouldn't normally seek out foreign language films, without sacrificing any of its own artistry - especially when the film has a message as important as this.

Rich people are parasites in our world, shrouding themselves in their own privilege - but the people they stand on top of are also the ones they cannot live without. Maybe it's a message that we've heard numerous times but it truly bears repeating.

I have a more detailed review here, if you want to read it.
