#91 | Academy Award Winner, Parasite

Director Bong Joon-ho brings to the screen one of the greatest cinematic thrillers in the last decade, Parasite is a thought provoking, gasp inducing spectacle of filmmaking. Parasite is a rare example of never loosing your interest, it is often that a film over two hours long can have slow moments or unfulfilled scenes but Parasite never looses your attention, this film never fails to grip me entirely. I adore watching this film, it never gets boring and it never fails to disappoint me.


Winning Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay at the 2020 Academy Awards- if you're yet to watch Parasite I highly encourage that you do, right now. The story follows the Kim family, who are struggling financially, they see an opportunity to make a steady income when the son of the family starts working for the wealthy Park family. Soon, all of them find a way to work within the same household and start living a parasitic life, living off of the wealth and lifestyle.


Overall, when I first watched Parasite I was completely take back by it's shockingly engaging and perfectly unique storyline. Parasite starts as one thing and develops into something completely different by the end, a slow decent into madness, the narrative and its characters all spiral into insanity and it is truly entertaining every time I watch.
