Parasite ★★★

While technically proficient and well-acted, in the end the movie is a vile and nihilistic waste of time.

 The rich family are cardboard cutouts and the poor family are inexplicably skilled at deception (and other things) while lacking a motivation for their depraved actions.

 It doesn't really have anything to say - its "social commentary" is vapid and one-dimensional. I must admit I enjoyed parts of it but the ending in particular was jarring, disturbing, and devoid of humanity.

Not surprised this won "Best Picture" given the perverse, anti-life lack of morality Hollywood embodies. Should have known, given I found "Snowpiercer" to be an unwatchable mess.
