PARASITE is one of the best movies of 2019 and it is director Bong Joon Ho's best picture. It is a grand social commentary on the divide between the poor and the rich, and how they treat each other. The Kim family cons their way into working for the rich park family. The Kim family learns how the Park family looks down on them as events will soon spiral out of control for both families. PARASITE is a perfect blend of comedy, drama, and satire as you can feel for both families while also wishing it didn't have to be this way as each family feeds off each other with their own needs and wants.

PARASITE has gone on to grab four Oscar wins including Best Picture, Best Foreign Language Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. The movie explores universal themes present in any culture and country. The poor Kim family is trying to improve their lives. The Park family has it all, but they need others to cook and clean, be a driver, and tutor their kids. However, the head of the Park family can't stand that subway smell that people get from riding the subway. PARASITE is in development as a series for HBO and I can't wait to see how further the show can go into the themes of class divides and how sometimes it is a symbiotic or parasitic relationship between the poor and the rich.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Q&A with Director Bong Joon Ho
Two theatrical trailers
Digital code to stream and download a copy of the movie

FINAL ANALYSIS: PARASITE is one of the best movies of 2019 and it deserves to be watched by everyone as it shows the class divide that exists in any culture.
