Parasite ★★★★★

Amazing film. A true rollercoaster of emotions. I was caught laughing, crying, gritting my teeth, screaming, gasping, etc. The language barrier is not a barrier at all, in fact, I feel as if it enhanced the film. This film depicts humanity and the lengths people go for, yes, love, but more importantly the lengths people will go to climb the hierarchy of society. I went into this film not knowing what to expect, I thought it was a comedy for the entirety of the first part of the film, then a perfectly timed shift occurred. Absolutely beautiful, terrifying, and revealing. I know it changed my life, I’m just not sure how: playing into the meaning of the film itself.
