"I feel terrible, like there's a weight on my chest."
"A heart's a heavy burden."
A masterpiece and one of the definitive theater experiences of 2019, a cinematic event that tempts, earns & revels in audience participation in its sheer ingenuity & bravado.
Director Bong powerfully reflects the impossibility of separating your behavior from class. It's a lot easier to be "nice" when your fridge in full and harder not to be "mean" when it's empty. Ultimately, Parasite is a cunning interrogation to our point of empathy with people of both extremes and the limits of "social justice."
I can't fucking wait to see this again.
Quentin Tarantino's 9th movie is another masterpiece, equal part elegy and prayer for what he wishes the past really was.
He's never had dialogue this naturalistic and free, his camera this relaxed yet ultra-precise, or such an absorbing feeling of wistful melancholia and whimsy.
This isn't only a movie only Tarantino could have made, but a movie he only could have made now.
