There’s a reason that PARASITE won six Academy Awards this year, including Best Picture and Best Director. It’s the same reason that the Alamo Drafthouse’s flagship theater in Austin, TX was officially renamed Bong Joon Ho Cinema in 2019.
It’s because his films resonate with us. They burrow their way into our minds like few movies can. Their stories are rich, their characters well-drawn, and they’re dense with themes that provoke discussion and thought, particularly with regard to issues of class. But, perhaps most amazingly of all, his films accomplish all of these things while also being wildly entertaining, genre masterpieces. And nowhere is this more true than in his greatest work (so far): PARASITE. If you haven’t seen the film yet, we recommend fixing that immediately.
PARASITE is an incredibly relevant, defining, and boundary-breaking film by a director whom we completely adore. The film is universally recognized as brilliant, and it lives up to the hype. Couple that with Rory Kurtz, one of the best poster illustrators currently working, and the result pretty much breaks our brains.
