Parasite – Director Bong Joon-Ho, 2019

Pressing play to watch this Oscar sweeping movie, I had no idea what to anticipate. Parasite is funny, thrilling, intriguing, but eye opening. The story presents a symbiotic relationship between two families living completely different lifestyles: A rich family who only has to worry about when their meals will be cooked for them opposed to a poor family that gets caught up in a string of lies to get jobs. Deeper into the story, more fascinating plots unfold. Every minute of the movie is captivating, I did not want to miss any parts. The ending is crazy, and something I would not have imagined. Furthermore, the movie leaves a metaphor open to the audience of who the real parasite is. Overall, Parasite is a very creative concept which reveals the complicated relationship between social class and greed. I would recommend this movie to thrill seekers.
