“It’s best to go into Parasite not knowing too much about what you’re about to see; the better to let its sly power sneak up on you. A dark satire of the class divide in contemporary South Korea, it’s the story of two families of four. One of them lives in a squalid basement apartment, dank and cluttered; all four members, including the grown son and daughter, are out of work, causing them to take desperation jobs like folding pizza boxes. The other family, the Parks, are wealthy, living in a vast, elegant home with green lawns and gleaming floors and a basement stocked with every imaginable need. These two families seem to be living in different worlds, and indeed they are... But those two worlds connect, in the movie’s early scenes: Ki-woo, the oldest son of the unemployed family, forges some university documents to get a job tutoring the Parks’ teenage daughter. Dazzled by the easy money, he encourages his sister Ki-jung to likewise fake her credentials and get hired as an art therapist for the Parks’ young son. And then … well, you’ll just have to get pulled in, as I was, watching as a deception gets spun tighter and tighter until you’re certain that something will snap, like a rubber band stretched beyond endurance. You’ll watch knowing you’re in the hands of a master filmmaker” - Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times. “Another wickedly clever tale from the director about class and survival, Parasite is a brilliant tonal juggling act that defies easy genre categorization. It fuses dark satire, suspense, and tragedy with incisive social commentary. It’s an exhilarating rollercoaster ride that keeps you guessing at every sharp turn, and by the end, leaves you a bit paralyzed by its magnificence.” - Oliver Whitney, GQ
