Parasite ★★★★★

I drank a substantial amount of whiskey before this rewatch, but this viewing was still as tense as the first. 

There’s nothing to say about Parasite that hasn’t been said, but I personally find it to be extremely well done. The characters are all so human and so complex. Even the title of this film is pristine, and is a talking point on its own.

No matter how clever or resourceful a person is, there’s a significant likelihood that they’ll never have a chance to “walk up that flight of steps” or pull themselves up to an affluent life. That ending is such a glorious punch in the gut for viewers. Despite the humor in the beginning of the film, the final scenes are oppressively sad. Parasite is a work of art worth revisiting nonetheless.
