Bong has made several films about the class (including “Snowpiercer” and “Okja”), but “Parasite” may be his most courageous test of the structural inequalities that have defined the world. It is a tonal juggling act that is beginning to sound like a joke-style of rituals that draws a group of beloved artists into a very rich family of unpopular eccentrics. And then Bong turns hard to the right who asks us what we are watching and sends us badly to the bloodshed.
Can the poor just enter the land of the rich? The second part of the “Parasite” is one of the bravest things I’ve ever seen in countless years. The film always threatens to split – taking one of the most twisted twists in the immersion of the project – but Bong holds it all together, and the result is good.
Parasite is an amazingly entertaining film about the narrative, but also a lot of what happens under how the rich use the poor to live in ways I can’t completely destroy here (good writing about this movie can come after the release). Suffice it to say, the rich in any country live on the work of the poor, whether they are housekeepers, teachers, and drivers who employ them, or something very dark. Kim’s family will be reminded of that vicious cycle of cruelty and inequality.
