Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: Cinematographer Kyung-pyo Hong’s (“Mother”) camera often pans in a vertical motion, emphasizing the upstairs downstairs elements of Bong’s story… one of the year’s most entertaining movies.
[New (11/28/19)] | Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
Excerpt: Parasite is unlike any movie that’s existed — at the same time funny, terrifying, thrilling, and relevant — and one of the best movies of the year.
Bavner Donaldo @ Cinejour [Indonesian]
Richard Gray @ The Reel Bits
Excerpt: Bong Joon-ho draws on his considerable talents to explore the divide between rich and poor. A film you’ll be digesting for a while, before planning to see it again. But you know what they say about plans…
Roxana Hadadi @ Pajiba
Excerpt: Bong Joon Ho’s Cannes winner ‘Parasite’ is a fantastically dark, horrendously bleak portrait of classist indoctrination
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: The events are so unpredictable that they seize our attention. It’s intriguing to see what occurs next.
Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
Excerpt: It’s a movie that astonishes in the moment in the wonder of a good story well told, and lingers long after, its messy implications permanently unresolved.
Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
Excerpt: It’s a weird but maybe era-appropriate coincidence that the two best films of the year so far—Us and now Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite—are searing black comedies about class, featuring two rival families whose differences in wealth are largely the result of chance.
Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
Excerpt: A wild ride [where] privilege and exploitation prove to be traits that are at once synonymous and adversarial depending on who wields which and upon whom.
Pat Mullen @ That Shelf
Excerpt: Parasite defies categorization, so let’s simply call it a masterpiece.
Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee
Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
Excerpt: Parasite is a real gem
Paulo Portugal @ Insider [Portuguese]
Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico [Portuguese]
Excerpt: All unemployed, Ki-taek’s family takes peculiar interest in the wealthy and glamorous Parks for their livelihood until they get entangled in an unexpected incident.
Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
Excerpt: Bong Joon-ho’s biting social satire is darkly funny and wildly entertaining.
Josh Taylor @ www.forgetfulfilmcritic.com
Excerpt: Parasite is as socially conscious as it is wildly entertaining. His use of virtuoso camera technique, dense structure, surprising plot twists, and pitch-black humor coalesce into an unforgettable piece of cinema.
