Just as the Kims attach themselves to the Parks, Parasite latches on to you and takes advantages of your ignorance of its transformative nature it has in store by gripping you for the first section of its runtime with an original premise which creates room for elaborate dark humour and suspense. Bong Joon-ho utilizes the normal world of both families and defines them so impeccably as the movie ever so often falls back on the characteristics of each individual at…
Send in the f*ing clowns
His untamable, hysterically soul-piercing laugh. His artistic, mellow dance. All engraved in my mind after leaving Joker.
What Phoenix does is ineffable. A deprived man in a boiling pot, pushed to the verge of mental and physical disruption, ultimately embracing what has always been lurking inside his outer shell. A corruptive arc bound to ensue in the rather onesided, yet gorgeously shot world, in which cruelty appears to be ruling every alley, corner and street…
While we're here talking, he's out there getting it done.
Isn't a car a spiritless piece of machinery? It takes a man like Ken Miles to breathe new life into it. The brawn aligns to the brain.

Distinguishable miniatures within a 4:3 ratio remind us that bridging the gap of seamlessness is often not required to achieve asthaetically pleasing imagery. In fact, it was…
How the fuck else are you supposed to do this job? Cocaine and hookers, my friend.
Remorselessness is a trait filmmakers may consider to incorporate into their own works. The Wolf of Wall Street is a catharsis of sorts, unshackled from the expectations and suffocating sanity of our fragile culture. Sometimes that's the way to go and Scorsese and co. sure as hell triumphed.
Obscene, barbaric, vicious, you name it. It's a nutty (and doubtlessly lengthy) joyride accompanying an infamous…
Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it.
In a chameleon manner, Patrick Bateman adapts himself to the circumstances, effortlessly putting off and on his mask of insanity and frenzy. Akin to his eminent Dark Knight , Bale's character in American Psycho is night and day, disparate identities fighting a ferocious battle over the mind of the protagonist.
Superficially, Bateman personifies capitalism, overtaken by satirical greed and ceaseless envy. Dinners and casual talks under colleagues become internal…
