Ever since its release in America on October 5, 2019, Parasite has stimulated conversations about its unique approach all across the nation. South Korean writer and director Bong Joon-Ho has brought a legendary cinematic piece to the movie screen, and with its compelling story as well as unexpected twists and turns, it deserves its title of movie of the year, and possibly of all time.

As a movie fanatic myself, I wasn’t expecting much when entering the cinema for this film, but I was interested to see why such a foreign film was being praised so much by western audiences. I now know why. With its hidden commentary on social classes as well as its handling of its characters, Parasite asks the audience questions that are important to this day and age.

There is no question as to why it has already won multiple awards, including a Golden Globe as well as multiple nominations for the Oscars. Director Bong Joon-Ho himself has also received the Best Director nomination for the Oscars as well. I am not kidding when I say that this only one out of two movies that I have ever seen that has made me speechless (the other being Spirited Away (2001)).

If you did not get a chance yet, please watch this movie, and take a chance on it. It is a decision you will not regret. I rate this movie an astonishing and well deserved 10/10. This movie is rated R – restricted.
