Parasite

Parasite ★★★★★

Maybe the most unapologetic genre film Oscar® sweep since Silence of the Lambs? Remove Parasite's subtitles, and you have a slick pop thriller made with enough reversals and setups and payoffs to make even the most clueless Hollyweird suit white knuckle a theater seat. Anyone saying this is an art film or difficult probably just hates reading. And the additional commentary about the working class fighting themselves instead of the real rich enemy still packs a punch. If he lived in America, the "respect" guy would probably be licking Bloomberg's boots. Weird how people seem to worship wealth in any country.
