Parasite ★★★★★

"Ahh, peaches"

Bong Joon-Ho's Palme D'or winning effort is just absolutely delicious. That's an adjective I never thought I'd use to describe a film, but I just ate this right up from its opening frames. Parasite is twisted and hilarious in all the best ways you could imagine with just about every character in the film being endearing and equally enigmatic. Though you know what these characters are thinking, you never exactly know what they're going to do next, and it just becomes incredibly chaotic as the film goes on. When I wasn't on the edge of my seat, I was either laughing my ass off or gasping my breath away. Parasite is unlike any other film you'll find in 2019, and it may just be my favorite that I've seen thus far. Just absolutely incredible.
