Parasite ★★★½

grabbed a spherical ice cube out of my sub zero freezer to keep my woodford reserve cold before i turned on my sixty inch tv in my climate controlled home to rewatch this brilliant movie about the depredations of capitalism

Once again struck by the fact that the first hour or so is really fantastic and that the second half feels kind of disjointed and messy ... and that final monologue is kind of cringe. “If you haven’t gotten it thus far allow me to explain it to you: the whole bootstraps thing is nonsense.” Okay okay eesh. 

I dunno, I still find it hard to move this past “pretty solid!” to “obviously great!”
