“Parasite”–movie review   1 comment

Parasite

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.
 
Basically it is the story of how a very poor family of 4, parents, son and daughter scams their way into the home of a very wealthy family of 4 consisting of the parents, daughter and son. Really can’t talk about the movie itself without giving spoilers, though none of them jolted and/or surprised me.
 
The movie is 2 hours and 13 minutes of which 13 minutes could have been cut very easily or spent in explaining some relationships that are sort of glossed over.
 
“Parasite” takes place in Korea and the differences between the classes are made immediately. The film has subtitles that took me a few minutes to get used to but to which I adapted fairly quickly.
 
I left the theatre glad I didn’t walk out but at the same time I really can’t see recommending it while, on the other hand, Allen thought it was a classic whodunit.
