To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This has to be the most unlikely of Best Picture Oscar winners. It should be noted this film is from South Korea and ALL of the dialogue is in Korean with English subtitles. If you’re not into reading your films this movie may not be for you. This reviewer loved it. The story is quirky, the setting grubby and it’s beautifully shot. Recommended!
Fantastic movie! Definitely should be added to your watch list if you haven't already. Full of surprises. Don't know what the other review meant by "no English soundtrack", the movie is Korean with English subs. However, the product page on here has English under the Language category, this should be changed to Korean with English subtitles.
I don't watch a lot of subtitled films as I am the type of person who would have a film on whilst playing a video game, browsing the internet or doing chores around the house, so I am not always looking directly at the screen. However I heard such good things about Parasite that I decided to sit and watch it properly. Well worth it.
I don't really know how to describe the genre. It's got shades of horror and thriller but nothing really graphic. Some parts even made me laugh. One part I thought was going to be the ending was not. It really holds your attention and is very surprising. It is one of the best films I have watched recently, I am happy to have seen it and would definitely recommend watching it.
