Re: “Bong Joon-Ho's Acclaimed Satire 'Parasite' Has Nothing Much to Say

I managed to see this movie before learning anything about it other than its title and the name of its director. While I know Bongs movies and therefore knew it was likely to be stuffed tight with metaphorical commentary on *something*, I watched it like I watch all movies: hoping only for a solid telling of a great story. I believe it delivered.

I dont think a movie has any responsibility to deliver a message. I think it needs to be pleasurable to watch. Any message is of tertiary importance (secondary importance goes to the popcorn not being stale). The moment a movie makes its message important, I regret spending money on it.

If one interprets a message within a well done movie, great. There are countless movies that have been saddled with them by critics and historians (The Wizard of Oz, for example, and Star Wars). But I prefer to just watch, and hopefully, to become immersed. And leave the importance analysis for much, much later.

This was a kick ass story and the telling was insane. A+ in my book.
