“Parasite”: My Review

I watched the film Parasite over the weekend.  Parasite has received several awards including Oscars for best picture and best director.  The film is highly enjoyable and I recommend that you take the time to watch it.  It is a South Korean film with subtitles.  I know that subtitles are a turn off for a lot of people.  But I watched the movie with my suitor who doesn’t typically like movies with subtitles and he enjoyed the movies as much as I did.

I can’t go into much detail about the plot because I would spoil it for those that haven’t seen it.  All I will say is that the film centers around a South Korean family that is down on their luck.  The son gets a job offer to work as a tutor for a wealthy family.  That opportunity turns into a chance for his family’s fortune to turn around.

Parasite has a lot of surprises, twists and turns.  The line between morality and right and wrong is blurred.  No one in this film has a moral high ground and everyone’s actions can be justified or criticized.  I haven’t seen anything else like it.  It’s a great story that keeps viewers wondering what will happen next and how it will all end.
