    Was going to post this. So psyched about it. First for South Korea, and for the first time two Asian winners in a row! Said to be unanimous decision too.

    My parents both love Parasite, so Bong may have shot through their perception of “festival films” good. Frankly, give him another Palme for that.

    US trailer



    Neon does a great job cutting this, keeping the story beats mostly to the first act (and context-free images from the rest that help set the mood but don't reveal anything much).
