Parasite de Bong Joon-Ho est un puzzle démoniaque, abrasif, violent, qui fait chavirer le cœur des spectateurs autant qu’il fait déjouer chaque rouage de son scénario pour faire de ses rebondissements un élément de langage qui parle autant à la fibre sociale du film qu’à son attachement pour le cinéma de genre. Again, for the people in the back, HE IS WRONG TO DO THIS. First off, I completely agree that everyone is entitled to their own line of thinking and having their own opinions. 'King Kong’ at 15: The Horror of Peter Jackson’s Big Budget Monster Movie, Stand By Me is such an amazing and heartfelt film, British actress Naomi Ackie to play Whitney Houston in film biopic. I was hoping we would be blessed with 2 consecutive Oscar winners - Green Book and 1917- made to simultaneously entertain and enlighten audiences. Industri film Korea lagi gesit-gesitnya unjuk gigi pada dunia. Parasite is a masterful piece of social satire and dark comedy, a scathing portrait of both the upper and lower classes. A corporation poisons a local river to save mother rather than firing a dozen employees, and those who drink from it get sick. That the film points toward this is not, as far as I read it, vilifying rich people, or even wealth. Yup, though I've added that Ki-taek getting beat down extended to well before the beginning of the film, too. Everyone is just a person, which is an important distinction to make. I will discuss this more later. Money buys awards now. Add in the fact that the part-time job folding pizza boxes was set up by his kids, and I imagine that as their father -- as the senior person who's supposed to be able to provide for his family -- he's pretty damned pissed off. Also, the Park family did not get swindled very hard. Mother made me cry more than any movie ever has. I find that opposing views can be illuminating as far as understanding the thought processes of people whoI do not agree with. Kevin's family in Home Alone are shitty people, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is such an excellent movie, Paddington 2 is the Dark Knight of talking animal family movies. And they are parasites. Beautiful and inspiring cinematography. He is wrong to do this. Didn't just tell Moon-gwang and Geun-se to keep their money and that they would be looked after? Yes, Kim was fed up, and could have blamed Park ultimately for the harm his family endured, but the stabbing seems incompatible with the care he had for his family. Close. The insult is not one of his actions or decisions, but just his station in life. The tone shift was a bit too much for me. Beautifully shot but terrible pacing, acting. Tahun ini, tepat 100 tahun perfilman Korea, sutradara Bong Joon-ho berikan hadiah termahal, yaitu Piala Palem Emas alias Palme D’Or Festival Cannes 2019. Kim Ki-taek is a full character, and his motivation for that moment begins well before hand, based on the concept of "crossing the line". Your short attention span does not invalidate his post. Weird bad overacting, overhyped, cheesy and predictable story. For leaked info about upcoming movies, twist endings, or anything else spoileresque, please use the following method: During this hiding, his employer insults him, deeply. He tries to be positive for his kids, but he's SO close to losing it completely. In looking through the negative reactions, I found a few themes across them that I would like to respond to, believing that they are seeing something in the movie that I did not. One minute we're watching some great tap-dancing, the next we're witnessing a mob of war-weary villagers beating an innocent woman. … That the Kim family explicitly harms people in search of money is not to praise them, but to point of that a system where my well being is based on your suffering is a system that hurts people. You’ve never seen a movie quite like “Parasite.” Dammit. The film makes you play a guessing game of which of the two families are the most rotten. Park and Kim are not peers, and in that moment Park essentially tells Kim that the employee/employer line is not only strict, but that any sense of solidarity between them cannot exist because he is less than the man who pays him. Wealthy idiots and people who have leveraged their intelligence into money. Everyone is allowed to like or dislike a film for whatever reasons they see fit. There are some small stacks of books strapped together and some cardboard boxes, which look like they used to live in a bigger apartment with more space and storage. The decisions made sense, the ambiguity reflected the messy world we inhabit, and neither the rich nor the poor were portrayed as too smart or stupid for their position in society. Writing this reply, I think I figured out the main thing that I don't like about the movie, which applies to a lot of critically acclaimed movies: I wasn't entertained. I really want to watch it again, just to experience it. This is a sub for movie discussion and that's what OP is doing. [I had previously written a negative review of Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer (2014).] :::Alerta de Spoiler::: After 10 minutes I was ready to leave "Parasite" but I can count on one hand how many movies I have walked out on so I decided to stay and find out why word of mouth was being so positive about the film. I have no faith that anyone will be persuaded to change their opinion, but do feel the need to put my two cents into the mix. What things did you not enjoy about the latter half? This review was filed from the Toronto International Film Festival on … I’ve been waiting for the hype train to slow down to watch this movie so I could try to go into it without any expectations. The rich family didn't seem that bad. Still a poor decision, and a cruel act, but one that can be understood. No es de sorprender que esté tan sobrevalorada por la crítica, porque la crítica ha evolucionado para mal, ahora son más doble-moral que nunca, estigmatizan unas películas y sobrevaloran otras. Simply OVERRATED, first hour it's ok, but the second it's repetitive and boring. I guess the whole scene doesn’t make much sense to me because Kim seems so beaten down I felt like he’d be more apt to to throw his hands up and tend to his family at that moment instead of stabbing Park. The assertion that the poor were made out to be too smart and the rich too stupid takes liberties with the facts of the movie, again putting the cart before the horse. This is South Korean movie from a famous Korean director Bong Joon Ho. And now he is at the party, being told to act like a savage native to be killed by a child. Critics Pick Film Review: ‘Parasite’ Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho is on excoriating form in his exceptional pitch-black tragicomedy about social inequality in … And the Park family aren't bad guys. There's no read to downvote and be rude. It is part of a character arc where a downtrodden man, one who has had quite the past day, finally loses it and crosses the line. Unless of course, twist he somehow hated and resented his family and when he was asking Park if he loved his wife he was really projecting, especially when his wife kept calling him a “cockroach” etc. But Parasite might be his most intricate examination of the topic so far. Another poor-made korean "masterpiece" has been born into this world bringing light of the genius hand of its' makers into unwashed masses, showing true colors of reality, bringing wisdom and ..... freaking clowning. It is basically a Korean take on the Japanese movie "shoplifters", that tries so hard for satire with exagerated characters, scenes and plot lines. La verdad es una película que entretiene, a pesar de ser muy larga, pero no tiene nada especial. I don’t understand this movie at all.

That the film does not deliver absolutes is a virtue. Ben Mendelsohn Joins Shailene Woodley In Serial Killer Thriller ‘Misanthrope’ - Woodley stars as a talented but troubled cop who is recruited by the FBI to help profile and track a murderer. But who knows, great film, makes you think. The story was interesting but not compelling. They are both fathers to a son and a daughter for whom they want the best. Beautifully shot but terrible pacing, acting, scripting, and really seems to care more about shoving class differences down your throat and focusing on shock value over actual storytelling. Palme d’Or winner at the 2019 Cannes Film festival, Bong’s Parasite (Gisaengchung) does indeed thwart expectations, but the question is — to what end? Incredibly overrated. Pardon me If I’m not a millennial. Whether sad or uplifting, or both, I want to leave the theatre with a new perspective on life.

Bong should have stopped while he was ahead. ... Parasite is a good film. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Parasite shows the extent to which we go to in order to live a comfortable life. Imagine your boss not only saying that you stink (foreshadowed brilliantly by Park Da-song's noticing the shared smell of the Kim family), but that your stench is an affront to him, bordering on grounds to be fired. Other than a contrarian view, which in and of itself is good enough reason if that is your viewpoint. I've seen next to nothing saying negative about this movie, and I just can't understand why. Parasite is a movie about illusions, which is to say, it is about class and wealth. The one negative review of Parasite. In a world where for me to have, someone else has to go without, those willing to take will win. No one has been exploited or displaced or underpaid or overworked or put in harms way in search of profit? Nice write-up, very in-depth. All went to the basement? Very often universal praise leads people to find things wrong with the film. Then, he sees his daughter stabbed in the heart while in the middle of high society. The poor family's life sucks, they leech off other people, a lot of people die, and even the ending is one of despair and is a total downer. [–]LEJ5512 13 points14 points15 points 10 months ago (0 children). The Host and Mother are two of my all time favorite films. His son is almost in the best position, being allowed more humanity than the rest of the family by virtue of being the love interest of a teenage girl (a plot point that gave me pause due to its statutory faux-pas). I didn't review Parasite when it first was released. As far as the criminal hero being abhorrent, if you think the point of the movie was to say "poor people good, rich people bad", I think you've put the cart before the horse. I wouldn't go that far. This is not meant to be praise for the poor, but in the context of capitalism it shows the dirtier side of things. Banyak review film Parasite yang menyebutkan jika jalan ceritanya sangat unik. Thank you !

The Kim family was not some sudden criminal mastermind dynasty, they were a group who lucked into an opportunity and did everything they could to exploit it, until their inability allowed it to blow up in their faces.

I have heard film critics rave about this movie since the Cannes movie festival in May of 2019.I have to say I was quite disappointed by this film.I thought the first hour was slow and quite average.There was one great 10 minute scene in this movie but after that the film just falls apart.I have to say that Parasite and The Irishman were two critics favorites that I thought were mediocre films.
