We review Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s class-conscious thriller Parasite, a black comedy about the Kims, a scrappy lower class family living on the edge of subsistence in Seoul, who through luck and by hook or crook manage to gain employment as help in the household of their incredibly wealthy city neighbors, the Parks, only to realize much too late that their stroke of good fortune portends a much darker misfortune.

Review (31:31):

Today, we review The Host (2006), a critical and commercial hit in South Korea and abroad. It comes from director and screenwriter Bong Joon-ho and centers around a family’s quest to retrieve their lost child from the clutches of a giant mutant fish-monster, while battling a dysfunctional and oppressive bureaucracy, and slowly growing into better versions of themselves.
