Parasite ★★★★★

There's nothing I can possibly say right now that hasn't been said about this, but Bong Joon-ho's Parasite is the one of the most exciting, riveting films of the year. There's an undeniable, striking beauty in its refusal to be confined to just one single genre. The most subdued, but also one of the most thought-provoking plays on expectations and morality in quite a while.

Gifts are often symbolic things, but the symbolism you give them is entirely subjective. Sometimes, a gift feels more like a curse, a burden even, rather than a promise of good faith. You'll have to carry them until it comes full circle.
