Parasite

A family of cunning derelicts scheme to enter a wealthy household's employ in this genre-bending, exhilarating Cannes Palme d'Or–winning thriller of class struggle from South Korean master Bong Joon-ho (Okja, Snowpiercer). A glorious success and smashing box office hit for Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho — who returns home after his foreign adventures in Snowpiercer and Okja — the Palme d'Or– winning Parasite is a politically charged cinematic wonder. Described by Bong himself as "a comedy without clowns and a tragedy without villains," the film moves quickly from one tone to another, mixing pathos and satire with thrills and drama, in a perfectly controlled blend of many different genres. A vertical story of class struggle — punctuated by staircase scenes going from mouldy basements to top floors, from darkness to breezy spaces designed by star architects — Parasite observes and dissects with surgical precision the life of two families of different social backgrounds.
