Podcast co-host for Alternate Ending and film school dropout.
Tahar Rahim is incredible in this based on a true story film. The movie forces you to reckon with the human rights violations that occurred and continue to occur. For those who are squeamish, the brutal treatment is not overly graphic for the sake of being brutal, but still tough to stomach. Jodie Foster brings it as usual too as her advocate. Loved seeing them, but odd supporting casting for Zachary Levi, Benedict Cumberbatch and Shailene Woodley.
Parasite does for class disparity what Get Out did for race - but somehow with even more style. It is incredibly shot, tense and beautifully balanced tonally.
For those who praise Joker, I really hope you see this film. It has graphic violence, division of classes and despicable characters.
Where it sets itself apart is it does not only offer up a problem statement, but actually has something to say about the topic (Carrie, I’m looking at you).
I could watch a 2 hour movie of Bradley Cooper just starring at nothing with that boyish grin while spouting cheesy lines. Awesome acting all around and compelling story. Coopers direction shines as does Lady Gaga. A few issues with how the passage of time is handled, but overall a solid movie.
