Parasite ★★★★½

sometimes, a film reaches a level of hype before its release that you know it can’t live up to. no matter what it does, there is no way that it can attain the expectations that have been building and building and building. and with the way my 2019 in film is going, if it’s universally loved, i’ll probably find a problem with it. 

parasite is no such film. 

i won’t wade into spoiler territory because it is a film that is absolutely going to be better the blinder in you go, so i’ll say this: it’s damn near faultless. what an achievement. what a film.

Love, liked this review
