Critic Reviews for Parasite (Gisaengchung)
The inspired Parasite can't precisely be labelled a comedy, a thriller, nor a socially conscious drama about the class divide in South Korea, although it contains elements of all three.
You expect the whole enterprise to come crashing down around his ears, but this is a film-maker in total control of his craft.
Shifts tonal gears in total service of its class politics, infecting the film's breezy dark-comedy with notes of rage and melancholy.
As an escalating freak show of tension, surprise and class rage, "Parasite" would make a terrific double bill with Jordan Peele's "Us," which it matches and perhaps even surpasses in pact.
