Description

Meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki Woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heartwrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

  • *spoiler alert* good but overrated

    “Parasite” was very good and the political statement was impressive. Like many films that take the critics by storm, I’ll probably forget most of the film in a day or two. The films lenghty set up, with the family securing job positions (that prefaced the violence at the party) was too long ... I got it. The guy living in the basement was a nice surprise ... but to me,"Parasite" wasn't the masterpiece folks are claiming.

    The story/script is superb and has already been said countless times 5* there. What might not get mentioned is the cinemotography. Shot mostly indoors yet each shot feels weighty with purpose and intent. I see myself seeing this multiple times to absorb it all in. Get it now.
  • Great movie!

    The story is incredibly intricate. I found myself becoming friends with the characters becoming the villains. So much to think about after the movie. Highly recommend.

    I give it a 3 star because it wasn’t that great as to my point of views. I don’t get all the hype is all about like what everybody says. To me It was alright. The story was a little boring; I did made through the end of course. The plot, the climax was great and twisted plot and turns as all goes as well. But another thing is too many pot holes in the story that doesn’t make sense. The title doesn’t make sense, either. I just wish they could have explain the story a little bit better.

    If this is worthy of the ratings it received then the bar for cinematography is as low as ever. Cheesy comedy mixed with boring dialogue was the meat of this movie. I don’t understand what’s all the fuss. Is it because it’s foreign? I would be insulted if I was Korean. Is a common movie with a decent twist at the end that was not worth the dread of watching through it. I have seen better foreign movies on NetFlix.
  • Two thumbs way up! 👍🏼👍🏼

    This was a seriously memorable show. Just look at the reviews... I can’t really add anything that’s not been said. Maybe not the movie for family night or a first date. You need to watch every scene as there’s embedded rich symbolism. I just wish they would fix the subtitles - the writing was too small and sometimes couldn’t read at all do to color of letters (white) played over white or light screen. Took me hours to get through it due to this. But I didn’t mind because it was a very entertaining (engrossing) film. Anyway I know a lot of peeps who wouldn’t give it a chance due to subtitles. Lol probably people more like the Parks. But I guess they wouldn't care for the film anyway. Lol

    Watched it per recommendation, and I wasn’t disappointed but I was sort of bored. Long movie, gets its point across eventually, just not too sure what the commotion is all about lol I’ve seen better thrillers! It’s not a horror, more of a drama.
