'Parasite' isn't really a monster movie. Yet on at least one of its nearly infinite levels it is - and the monsters are us.



Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale.

Meet the Park Family, the picture of aspirational wealth, and the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.

By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

Such is the tale told by the Korean director Bong Joon-ho in his new movie, “Parasite,” which won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The judges at Cannes are no more infallible than the voters at the Academy Awards, but in this case the laurels were well deserved, and, amid the ...
