Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Parasite (2019)

Directed by Bong Joon Ho

Starring Kang-ho Song, Sun-kyun Lee, Yeo-jeong Jo, Woo-sik Choi


First half is wonderfully simple, fun, and theatrical, perfect for a stage play. But then things get awkwardly sexual, and both the family and story lose their innocence. Things suddenly dark and twisted and graphic, and by the end, it almost feels like we’ve watched two different movies: the first half a comedy, the second half a horror.

What happened to Min?

Beautifully shot, with great performances by all.
