Parasite | Oscar 2020 Winner | Movie Review

Parasite was nominated for six categories in oscar awards also known as Academy’s Award and this was the 92nd Academy Award and the movie Parasite won 4 Oscars which includes Best Picture 2020, Best Original Screenplay 2020, Best Director 2020, Best Foreign Language Film 2020


Ok now let’s get back to the Parasite. This movie was directed by Bong Joon ho and tells the story of a down underlock family that takes a special interest and a very wealthy family, everyone in this family is unemployed and slowly but surely they find a way to all get jobs working for this wealthy family in very private positions of a driver, a housekeeper, a tutor and the whole time this other family has no idea that all these people are related in scamming them. But when something rather unexpected happens it changes both of these family’s lives forever.


What a movie! Goddammit, movies are back. With Parasite, I feel very restored my faith in the film has returned. This is a wonderful movie and despite so many great films in his career already like Memories Of Murder, The Host, Mother, Snowpiercer, Okja this might actually be his best. I thought this movie was virtually flawless. I loved every minute of the film, it’s funny, in essence, it’s a social satire because we’re watching two very different families and how they perceive things, the characters we follow who are sort of scamming these rich people literally live lower than the others.

They live farther down in the city, when there’s a rainstorm the wealthy people think it’s beautiful, but for these guys they’re thinking Holy shit, our whole neighborhoods going to flood, and where this film shines is that so much of this is told through visuals, we get this great sequence where this family is trudging through a flood, trying to get back to their home, and we just have these incredible images playing out on the screen with beautiful breathtaking cinematography of the city and seeing how people from a certain area are looking at this rainstorm versus people who have to take buckets and get water out of their rooms, through the window because their entire house is filling with sewage.

Like in the opening sequence the family notices that their neighborhood is being fumigated for rodents and bugs and stuff. And they leave the windows open, because if all of this mess gets into their house they’ll get free fumigation this movie is also extremely funny it’s easily one of the funniest movies I’ve seen so far this year and the humor is very smart and extremely clever, and it’s intelligent because it respects its characters. They don’t view the wealthy characters as complete idiots. They’re not also total villains, either. They don’t necessarily do anything in the film that makes you hate them.

Although eventually you begin to understand that members of this less fortunate family are starting to hate them, and in a lot of films especially coming out of Hollywood less fortunate families are usually portrayed as imbeciles in this film though they’re extremely smart because they have to be, they don’t have the resources of the wealthy family, they don’t have all of that and so they have to use their wits to scrounge and get money they’re basically scavengers and to be a scavenger you have to be really smart. So the film wisely takes his characters and plays against type for what you would expect from them to great results.

Breathtaking Scenes & Phenomenal Cinematography :

Now I’m not going to ruin it for you if you haven’t seen it but there comes a point in the movie where the story shifts a little bit, it starts to get less funny, and a lot more serious and this point in the movie is what really hooked me. it’s all very realistic and portrayed in a way that you believe the things that are going on in this house are scary, but they’re scary because it seems plausible.

Oscar Winner for the year 2020 movie Parasite Review

You can watch the movie and you can’t really deny the possibility of something like that happening, which is why it’s a lot more frightening, there’s also a lot of brilliant visual connective tissue throughout the film that you can notice more in second and third viewings or maybe on the first if you’re paying close attention that tell a story, he uses very specific images in such a subtle way to make you understand, everyone’s plight, And like so many of my favorite films. This movie understands that certain things just need to be ambiguous. You don’t need to be told everything and sometimes you just have to look at someone’s face, and the expression they make to understand exactly how something makes them feel. And in that moment, you know why they do the things they do. You don’t necessarily justify their actions but what they’re doing makes sense to you because you’ve gone on this journey with them.
