Parasite (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Parasite is a really hard film to review.  Even by specifying genre you risk giving things away.  One thing I can say is that regardless of my thoughts on Parasite, it’s a film you need to see.  Rarely has a releases garnered such positive press – jumping into to some critics films of the decade. So what did I think… well Parasite it’s really good. It’s not in my top films of the decade and I don’t love it as much as many others but yup I can certainly see why it’s getting under the skin of a lot of people.  My best tip – try and read as little as possible in advance and just go see what is a really unique and interesting film.

Best Bit: Oh it’s that film…

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Old Boy, Barking Dogs Never Bite, Train to Busan
