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

The video was deleted and the phone also ended up in the trash, as it was on the kitchen island counter as it was being swept off. Clothes in Korea are often one size fit most doesnt make it too hard to find donation clothes that would fit enough for a party (unlike in say, US movies where donated clothes would be absurdly large or slightly too small, too short, etc) the characters clearly know the difference in the clothes.

As for your reaction to the ending, do you not understand why? There are some great articles by much better writers than I, but... Loan shark man had already lost some marbles from being underground for so long. Then he suffered personal agonizing tragedy (to say the least). He defended himself to the max, then took his ultimate revenge on Peaches. Dont underestimate someone who has nothing to lose.

I thought there were many messages regarding lines: class lines, physical barriers, being between the basement and the rest of the world taking a piss on you, even references to N Korea. As another commenter said, there is some cultural background that needs to be understood to get everything.

I think Boon is just reflecting a dark and true part of Korean society and some of the complex feelings that go with it. Like your boss, resent your boss. Take advantage while youre being taken advantage of. Fight for you, but feel guilty. Upward mobility is luck. You have to plan to go up, but never plan so you dont get let down. Older generation attitudes and feelings vs younger. Lower class struggles amongst themselves to belong, when the upper class still ignore them unless they want something from them.
