One of the most awaited films of the year, the winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and the latest stunning entry by the inimitable Bong Joon-Ho (JBFC International Filmmaker-in-Residence alum)! Parasite is that rare film that works on every level that it plays, from suspense and satire to sheer mischief and bitter class commentary. And the critics have responded in kind: “A furious and fiendishly well-crafted film” (Indiewire), “An escalating freak show of tension, surprise, and class rage” (LA Times), “A luxuriously watchable and satirical suspense drama” (The Guardian), “A malign delight from start to finish” (Screen International). It’s an experience of cinema by one of the great masters of the contemporary form.
