Parasite

US Release Date: 11 October 2019

Bong Joon-Ho’s pitch black comedy thriller was the toast of Cannes, waltzing away with the Palme d’Or – the first Korean film to do so. It came as no surprise to close observers. The South Korean director, who also directed Memories of Murder, is one of the sharpest talents in world cinema and his high concept films smuggle scathing social critiques of class structures and capitalist inequality. Parasite changes tack, cutting the metaphor for a comic caper, as an aspiring, impoverished family hack their way through the service industry. A biting satire on the cut-throat competition in emerging economies. While this won’t come out in the UK for a few more months, it is certainly one to keep your eye out for.
