Parasite

MISPLACED FAMILYHOOD

This Palme d'Or Winner (the Cannes Film Festival's top prize) by South Korean master filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho's is a satirical masterpiece that follows the unemployed Ki-taek family as they take peculiar interest in the wealthy and glamorous Park family for their livelihood and find themselves entangled in an unexpected incident.

"An exhilarating and furious indictment of class struggle, Parasite might be the masterpiece South Korea's Bong Joon-ho has been working toward his entire career. Mixing the social outrage of Snowpiercer, the wild humour of Okja, the heartwarming family drama of The Host, and the slow-boil vengeance of Mother, Bong's latest work is a genre-hopping triumph. Focusing on two families – one a clan of con artists living in a cramped basement apartment, the other led by a tech mogul who keeps his wife and two children safely ensconced in a star architect's modern-luxe mansion – Parasite expertly plays with tension and expectations. At first, it appears that Bong has created a sharp comedy, especially when he digs into the details of how one family becomes so familiar with the other. But then, in the midst of a torrential thunderstorm no less, both families' lives become upended in the most peculiar of ways, leading to a final hour that is sharp enough to draw blood. 4/4*" - Globe and Mail
