  • [New] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Cinematographer Kyung-pyo Hong’s (“Mother”) camera often pans in a vertical motion, emphasizing the upstairs downstairs elements of Bong’s story… one of the year’s most entertaining movies.
  • Bavner Donaldo @ Cinejour [Indonesian]
  • Richard Gray @ The Reel Bits
    • Excerpt: Bong Joon-ho draws on his considerable talents to explore the divide between rich and poor. A film you’ll be digesting for a while, before planning to see it again. But you know what they say about plans…
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: It’s a weird but maybe era-appropriate coincidence that the two best films of the year so far—Us and now Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite—are searing black comedies about class, featuring two rival families whose differences in wealth are largely the result of chance.
  • Paulo Portugal @ Insider [Portuguese]
  • Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: All unemployed, Ki-taek’s family takes peculiar interest in the wealthy and glamorous Parks for their livelihood until they get entangled in an unexpected incident.
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: Bong Joon-ho’s biting social satire is darkly funny and wildly entertaining.
