Parasite ★★★★

Clean, tight screenplay - using formula to propel its delightfully malicious idea - plus a slick, exacting surface make this one of the most entertaining movies of the year, easily. When the big, mid-film twist came up, my jaw literally dropped (I had to manually put it back in place) and the following 30 minutes or so alternate between Hitchcockian suspense and pitch black comedy in a way that reminds me of... well, Hitchcock. Bong shoots for pathos in the end, which undermines its theme of class self-sabotage; had the conclusion been more vicious, this might've turned into my favorite Bong (right now it's The Host).
