Best film of the year

This. 

I did a thread about it probably titled Parasite [2019] earlier this year if you want to look for it.

So many great films out of s. Korea.  Check out:

memories of a murder

Spring, summer, fall, winter.....and spring

Three Iron

Castaway to the moon

Oldboy

Just a few of my favorites.

 

Memories of murder is by same director as parasite

Bong Joon-ho's more famous movies are Snowpiercer, The Host, and Okja.

Watch train to Busan and the wailing too. Great movies along with parasite.

Nisan was good but I haven't been able to finish the Wailing. I don't know what my hang up is and I keep hearing about how good it is. Is it the ending?

Fucking went into this movie totally blind thinking it he some zombie/outbreak type movie. It's totally not that. 

 

Excellent movie though.

Fucking great, highly entertaining. Kinda like the Gallaghers from Shameless in a dark, dark, dark, Korean comedy.

I have kinda given up on Korean films because of they are usually 2.5 hours long but I had some time off and jumped at the opportunity to watch this... 

 

Loved it - I really thought I knew where it was going and then go totally blind sided.

Watched it this morning and it wont leave my head. 

Masterpiece... And I'm not some kid throwing that about randomly. 

A reviewer said "it's the film joker wanted to be"... I adored joker.. But this is next level... It's beautiful, clever, funny, sad, scarry.. It's got WTF moments. 

But, go in cold, dont read too much before. 

 

And like your man said in the 1st page... Lead actor (the "poor dad") is brilliant.

I just watched The Irishman... De Niro and Pesci and Pacino are excellent... But this guy was better... Like them he has a riveting screen presence... Just one glance or a twitch of his eye... Damn, he's made me gay! 

But seriously... Excellent, excellent movie

I sat for mabe 2 whole min at the end jusy going woooooah....and that's not even really the point.
