Look. A trailer where I have a sense of the tone of the film but no idea of what the whole story is! Wow that’s different from every trailer these days

Disclaimer: for all the people that thought this is the live action movie of the parasite anime, its obviously not, that movie already exists and it's meh to say the least.

South Korean movies are so intriguing. Half way through you are so taken in you forget you are reading subtitles. Speaking of which, I need to rewatch Train to Busan.

On the final day of Cannes, I waited over 2 hours in line out in the blazing sun for its last screening, only a few hours before its Palme d'Or win. 
The wait was well worth it, and it is one of the most memorable theater experiences I’ve ever had. 
Over the course of 3 days at the fest, I saw 9 films, and "Parasite" is the best film of 2019 so far.

I don't like watching psychological thrillers. Is it a psychological thriller...I need to prepare myself for that emotional rollercoaster ride.

I'm a big cinephile, and I just watched this movie this past Friday at Beyond Fest and holy moly Parasite is an absolute masterpiece! Best film in recent years and easily one of the best films of the decade. This is Bong Joon Ho's Magnum Opus, a movie that would be considered an end game film for other directors like Tarantino and Peele. Run, don't walk to go watch this movie, you won't regret it!
