John’s Parasite movie review

Parasite thumb

Director Bong Joon-ho is back with another wild and crazy movie, and this time it’s about a poor family infiltrating a rich family to bask in the high life. It’s very fitting that the movie is called Parasite, and it will be released in U.S. theaters this weekend. This is definitely one of Joon-ho’s best films, and he’s able to mesh drama and comedy together really well. You can check out my video review below!

The film has been receiving rave reviews, and for good reasons. The Kim family is a fun bunch, but their actions are anything but nice. What seems like an innocent tale of a poor family helping out a rich family quickly becomes a dark tale of deception. How far will the Kim family go to live the good life?

Our very own Mark Pacis also has his take on the film, which you can read here.

Synopsis: Greed and class discrimination threaten the newly formed symbiotic relationship between the wealthy Park family and the destitute Kim clan.

The film is directed by Bong Joon-ho (Okja) from a screenplay by Joon-ho and Han Jin-won. It stars Song Kang-ho as Kim Ki-taek, Jang Hye-jin as Kim Chung-sook, Choi Woo-shik as Kim Ki-woo, Park So-dam as Kim Ki-jung, Lee Sun-kyun as Mr. Park, Cho Yeo-jeong as Choi Yeon-kyo, and Jung Ji-so as Park Da-hye.

Parasite hits U.S. theaters on October 11, 2019.
