Description

Meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki Woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heartwrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

    Hearing such great things and how many twists and turns, I was excited to watch this. I shouldn’t known better. I’ve had people classify this as a horror/thriller and being scary. It had hints of thriller, but felt more like a dark comedy. It was by no means a horrible movie, but I felt it was just “watchable”. If you’re someone who loves digging deep for metaphors and deeper understanding of simple premises, you’ll prob enjoy this more than I. For all the hype this received tho, I’m extremely underwhelmed.
  • Brilliant!

    Started out entertaining and with sporadic humor. Shortly after getting immersed in the movie I suddenly realized I was wishing for it to “ hurry” along. So much of it not necessary to the plot. A little of this movie goes along with the old saying less is more. A little over kill in my opinion. Plus costly to rent.
  • Outstanding!

    Well-paced, smartly scripted, tense, funny, hopeful and dower. It’s worth rewatching and dissecting. A fantastic film that met the hype!
  • Very over rated!!

    One of the worse films I’ve seen. No plot, no continuity and I feel sorry for the actors for having to do it. The story is not believable at all as it leaves too many gaps and skips all over the place. It portrays the home owner, who is a successful rich business man and his wife as complete idiots who are the stupidest people in the world.
  • Not good

    The director of this film thought to himself people are stupid, he represent a family as parasite and his says: i made the Left-wing political film against capitalism. But his lying, he made the populistic film, family members are parasite because they are lumpen and don’t have any role in their society. At the beginning of the film we see the father as a stupid man, but in the middle of the film, the stupid man becomes clever and Professional driver and speaks with kindness. After their home sinks under water and they have to sleep in the stadium as homeless, the father tells the boy the anarchistic ideas: the perfect plan is the plan without previous plot, and what we see at the end of the film? we see Chaos and 3 murders: 2 lumpen and one capitalist. The film was full of Moral numbness.
