Gisaengchung [Parasite] (2019)


All unemployed, Ki-taek and his family take peculiar interest in the wealthy and glamorous Parks, as they ingratiate themselves into their lives and get entangled in an unexpected incident. (IMDb)
A cinematic peach: every dialogue and visual drips with succulent style and significance, while the plot is as juicy as they come (the night of drinking–basement discovery–escape into the rain was a standout sequence). It’s contrived but in the most well-rounded, delicious way possible (see the phenomenal editing and music building to the masterful hot sauce tissue climax of the first half), its flavourful flesh unearthing a pit of potent commentary on wealth and status in the second half.
9.5/10 (Breathtaking)
