Earlier this year Parasite made Oscars history by becoming the first ‘foreign language’ film to ever win Best Picture. Not only that, it also took out the Best Director and Best Original Screenplay categories.
At the time you could only watch it in Australia in theatres or by renting a digital copy. Now it’s finally hitting Stan so you can stream it as much as you want.
It’s difficult to describe Parasite, because a regular synopsis really doesn’t do it justice. In a nutshell it’s a South Korean black comedy about an impoverished family that scams its way into working for a ridiculously wealthy, and trusting family.
The entire two hours is a symphony of tension-building that can’t be tamed. If you think you have it worked out halfway through, you’re probably wrong. And just when you think you can’t take the build up anymore, you’re satiated by a gloriously dark joke or a beautiful shot.
The director and co-writer, Bong Joon Ho, is a genius and I need to go watch everything else he’s ever touched now.
Anyway, prepare yourself for a wild ride.
