Disturbingly fun, Parasite is a dramatic black comedy-turn thriller that contrasts the class differences between two families whose lives intertwine in unexpected and tragic ways. An entertaining multi-genre film that is full of unexpected twists, Parasite’s shock value seems to have been somewhat conflated by some with its merits as one of 2019’s best films (Klaus Ming January 2020).
