Parasite ★★★★½

It took sheer willpower to avoid knowing anything about this and was in for a pleasant surprise. Hilarious, sharp, and unpredictable... Though predictably Bong-Joon Ho/Korean. That pertains to the last acts taking radical tonal shifts. Still, while taking the expected mutation of tone, it still went in some shocking and riveting directions for the majority. I do think the ending cranked the melodrama up a tad too much, but I can't say it really hindered this dynamic experience.
