For the first time I’ve been granted press accreditation for the Toronto International Film Festival®, recognised as one of the largest and most prestigious film festivals in the world. So, I had the opportunity to watch and review a bunch of movies. This is my review of Parasite (South Korea, Bong Joon-ho, comedy/drama/thriller; original title: Gisaengchung).
It goes without saying that this review will be filled to the brim with spoilers, so steer away from it if you haven’t seen Nicolas Pesce’s Piercing but read it carefully if you have and are confused/frustrated about its ending. If you want to know what all the fuss is about, please check my spoiler-free review of the movie.
