      There are other influences outside of American ones that you seem to ignore or not be aware of...not every idea is derived from your native country

      What I really liked about this movie is They are not so different. The rich or poor . Its just who got lucky and who didnt.
      All 3 familes Tried Their own business (Kim's family tried bakery business and it did not go well and maid's husband Invested Money into that business( They dont know it's kim's family) and Park has His own business as well. The only difference is who got lucky with their business that went well. Poor and rich poisition could have been totally opposite.and that Anyone Could be in a situation of Kim's family

        The plot for the first act of the film is brought to you by Three’s Company. Absurd as that sounds, it actually works in the end, even when the film switches genres. Forgive me if that observation seems unkind. To paraphrase the film, perhaps if I had more money, I could afford to be nicer. 😀

          Joker had much of the same themes as Parasite. I was ultimately underwhelmed watching Joker after hearing about all the praise it received. On the other hand, I was overwhelmed watching Parasite. No disrespect to Joker, but Parasite should've received the attention that Joker got.

          Also, another thing to note is that Asian audiences, or audiences familiar with Asian culture, will find Parasite far more enjoyable than otherwise. There are subtle nuances with how the poor family act that is somewhat unique to Asian households. The father is somberly hardworking, the mother is proudly aggressive, the daughter is monotone yet not without a personality, and the son is reserved with aspirations. It really makes you feel like you're a part of their family. The solidarity of the characters in the Joker made my enjoyment of that film far underwhelming in comparison.

                Grace, thank you very much for referencing "The Servant" in your review of "Parasite," which confirms that you are Da Bomb when it comes to research and the love of movies. Much love.

                  I think Parasite was much better than Joker....

                    If it's not American movie, it's "Indie"...? What is the definition of "Indie" anyway...
                    Because Bong Joon Ho is one of the most famous directors in Korea. Curious.

                                The Host and Memories of Murder are way better movies than Parasite. Parasite was predictable and the former was not.

                                      As a Korean, nobody really wworries about North Korea. It's like threat after threat and most people are tired of being scared.

                                        Memories Of Murder is still standing as Bong Joon - Ho's masterpiece. Well worth checking out.

                                              "Bong" is likely pronounced as "Song" in English. Song Kang(prounounced as "Wang" as in Chinese name) Ho("hoe" in English). You're doing great job with their names. Thanks for the review. It's really helpful to understand the movie.

                                                Joker was my favorite movie of the year and I saw it multiple times but I finally got to see Parasite last night and I gotta say it passes it just slightly, I definitely need to see it again.

                                                  Bongjunho best works : 1. Memories of murder 2. Parasite 3. Mother
                                                  Well. Just an opinion from a Korean movie fan in south korea.
                                                  U should watch his film Memories of Murder!

                                                    Joker and Parasite... 2 jaw-dropping films of the decade.
                                                    Hope both wins the Oscars.

                                                      that house is not a gift from location scout god because Bong built it for this movie. just like how he built the poor neighborhood that the poor family is from.

                                                          Best indie film is The Lighthouse. I’d put Parasite as just the best movie of the year!

                                                          Parasite will win definitely no competition

It's his best work because that movie is the best true crime thriller of all time. The last scene in Memories of Murder will haunt and make you think for years to come.

                                                                                        the joker and parasite are not the same... parasite speaks to a servant and master relationship that has been in existence for as long as humans have been around. the joker, i would say has more of a relevance to what's happening politically currently due to riots worldwide and the people in power. yes both have to do with class divide but the dynamic is vastly different.

                                                                                        • James Cunningham

                                                                                            It’s fine if you think this movie is better but the movies are different.
