Parasite, 9.1/10, was a film I had heard a lot about, so when it appeared on the screen as part of #odeonscreenunseen I was filled with joy. That joy quickly turned to suspense as I became more and more transfixed on the plot that was unfolding before me. One of the many brilliant things of this film is how well it balances multiple genres and tones to keep you uncertain of where it’s heading. Outlining the plot without divulging too much is going to be difficult but here I go:

A struggling family sees an opportunity to infiltrate a wealthy family and get themselves jobs through deception.

Parasite has been written so incredibly that as soon as I left the cinema I wanted to go back and watch it again as I felt I had overlooked so many wonderful exchanges of dialogue. Class is such a prominent theme throughout the film but offset with the comedic undertone that makes sure it doesn’t forces this idea in the audience’s face until the moments where it truly matters. I urge you to take the chance to see this film if you can. It has made such a strong impression that it has comfortably earned a spot on my best of the year list.
