Parasite ★★★★½

I have no clue how to describe or characterize Bong Joon Ho's Parasite, but that inability to peg it down may be exactly why I adored this movie so much. Part family drama, part comedy, part thriller, part heist, part satire, and part who-knows-what-else, this film is delectably shot, perfectly-acted, and incredibly acute in its devastating takedown of social inequality. It is the movie for our time; it is the movie of our time. It is unsettling and unnerving, but more than that, it is undeniably fun. I'll have to go watch it again soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this great breakdown of Parasite's perfect montage by The Nerdwriter: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma1rD2OP85c
