This Month’s Highlight

Parasite

Parasite, Bong Joon Ho’s gut-twisting, Oscar–winning film, ends where it begins. Just as he called Snowpiercer — his film about class revolution set in a dystopia — his “hallway movie,” he has called Parasite his “stairway movie.” It is an upstairs-downstairs film that explores every available rung on the ladder of class aspirationalism. The movie starts in the half-basement apartment of the Kim family, with windows that barely peer above the ground. Half-basements are distinctively Korean spaces in urban centers like Seoul, and while the Kim house is firmly below ground, it still “wants to believe it’s above the ground.” Their home is an architectural purgatory that just meets the threshold of acceptable living and a fitting reflection of their psychological states: mean, but still hopeful. —E. Alex Jung
