Leo Brady reviews “Parasite” on AMovieGuy.com

Parasite is about the levels of life. Like a video game, we go through the process, trying to reach the next chapter, and for some of us, we are born behind everyone else, up against those who automatically go straight to the final boss. The funny thing about Bong Joon Ho’s newest film is that it’s marketed as a thriller, but works as a comedy too. It is sneaky how good Parasite is, considering it is the perfect representation of our time, and it just gets better the more you think about it. The director of such memorable films as SnowpiercerMemories of Murder, and most recently Okja, has made a film that not only feels made for humans to study, but a film to be passed down to generations. Not a single viewer won’t relate to the plight of our characters in Parasite, a movie that pokes at the morality of humans, the constant struggle and striving for wealth in all of us, and survival of the fittest. Parasite digs into our consciousness and will be there for a long time. Bong Joon Ho has made a magnificent film.
