Parasite is a movie about illusions, which is to say, it is about class and wealth. One of the first line items was a second full time job, as though working 80 hours a week, almost half the hours you spend alive every seven days, is just to be accepted.

Overrated AF,the first half of this movies is amazing but then becomes just unfunny and predictable. The decisions made sense, the ambiguity reflected the messy world we inhabit, and neither the rich nor the poor were portrayed as too smart or stupid for their position in society. The second hour, plus, devolves into a repetitive, rude, ignorant, and self-absorbed malfunction of a movie and.

Let's track his life from the Park family's impending return to the moment in question. Parasite is the most overrated Oscar winner of all time and apparently nobody is allowed to discuss the flaws, plot holes, and very problematic subtext without being harassed. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Parasite shows the extent to which we go to in order to live a comfortable life. A corporation poisons a local river to save mother rather than firing a dozen employees, and those who drink from it get sick. The first hours of Parasite is a whirlwind of fun, fascinating, and engaging ideas. Getting past that, I felt like we were supposed to root for the poor family, but I never really wanted them to succeed in what they were doing. Gratuitous sex, totally unnecessary to the plot...excessive violence, again not really necessary to the plot. I definitely don't mind people disliking something but a lot of people just copy and paste the same flawed arguments (almost verbatim) instead of taking the time to come up with their own opinions.

No es de sorprender que esté tan sobrevalorada por la crítica, porque la crítica ha evolucionado para mal, ahora son más doble-moral que nunca, estigmatizan unas películas y sobrevaloran otras.

Beautiful and inspiring cinematography. Post it on /r/TrueFilm. That's fair. How smart are they if they opened the door for Moon-gwang? A battered woman shows up to take care of a husband trying to escape death due to debts, and the family's reaction is to push them into the basement so that they may remain a step higher on the social staircase. While that seems to be what Bong is trying to incite, the main thrust of the movie was just too boring and left me unimpressed. That's taking liberties with interpretation. Now I fear that the artsy crowd has its "The Artist", "Birdman", and "No Country for Old Men", unwatchable trash that won't rate higher than a test pattern on overnight TV.

Critics Pick Film Review: ‘Parasite’ Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho is on excoriating form in his exceptional pitch-black tragicomedy about social inequality in … I see the immoral actions of the Kim family to be a critique on social divide, but remember that they aren't to good guys. The Park family isn't stupid, they're just not as concerned with the help as some viewers wanted them to be. Kim Ki-taek is a full character, and his motivation for that moment begins well before hand, based on the concept of "crossing the line". The real world is not so clear. Even this does not quite break him, and he is willing to toe the line in the throws of this sadness. Maybe feeding a line of bullshit about art therapy is going a bit far, but barring that they aren't especially cunning, just dedicated and willing to do what it takes. Based on the previews (or what little I found before the movie), I expected this to be about an actual parasite or creature as opposed to the analogy that the poor family is the parasite on the rich family. First off, I completely agree that everyone is entitled to their own line of thinking and having their own opinions.

It is part of a character arc where a downtrodden man, one who has had quite the past day, finally loses it and crosses the line. Far from a masterpiece. His son is almost in the best position, being allowed more humanity than the rest of the family by virtue of being the love interest of a teenage girl (a plot point that gave me pause due to its statutory faux-pas). Weird bad overacting, overhyped, cheesy and predictable story. If viewed strictly as in the moment, where his decision is fueled only by Park Dong-ik's reaction to Geun-se's smell, it seems irrational and vindictive. I wouldn't go that far.

I didn't review Parasite when it first was released. I tried to avoid it. I see the immoral actions of the Kim family to be a critique on social divide, but remember that they aren't to good guys. Parasite de Bong Joon-Ho est un puzzle démoniaque, abrasif, violent, qui fait chavirer le cœur des spectateurs autant qu’il fait déjouer chaque rouage de son scénario pour faire de ses rebondissements un élément de langage qui parle autant à la fibre sociale du film qu’à son attachement pour le cinéma de genre. I believe that they were willing to work, willing to do whatever it took to keep food on the table and get a shot at living somewhere other than the basement where drunks pee right outside the window. If you look at it in the context of the story, as part of a harsh time for a man who sees his world unraveling, through the eyes of a man who almost saw a plan succeed and is reminded by an act of god that he should not have hope, it makes a lot more sense. That the film points toward this is not, as far as I read it, vilifying rich people, or even wealth. I’ve been waiting for the hype train to slow down to watch this movie so I could try to go into it without any expectations. Other times, this type of film is so lacerating, so numbing in how it withholds redemption or tenderness, that the evil it illustrates seems to offer no exit. I will say everything I’ve heard and read has been very positive about the experience of watching it from friends, users and critics alike.

The obvious news was that he, like Geun-se, tried to run a bakery shop, but it failed (also arguably due to circumstances beyond his control). The Kim's are not some heroic rags to riches story, but a tale of people who tried and failed until they were willing to do anything, including hurting innocent people, just to get to a place where they were no longer starving in a basement apartment. Since its release, Parasite has won the Palme d’Or — the top prize — at the Cannes Film Festival, received incredibly positive reviews, and broke box-office records worldwide. And to top it off, which I stated earlier, it's a downer. He is told that the money he is being paid means that he is not really allowed to have an opinion, or to analyze a situation. The film makes you play a guessing game of which of the two families are the most rotten. That the Kim family explicitly harms people in search of money is not to praise them, but to point of that a system where my well being is based on your suffering is a system that hurts people.
