Parasite made history last night as the first Korean film to receive an Oscar®, but clinching four top Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Film is the pinnacle of a spectacular awards season for a film which has racked up more than 100 award nominations to date.
(Back in October, Decerry reviewed this movie and gave it a 10/10, so don’t say we didn’t tell you to catch this one early.)
A volatile, symbiotic relationship between the uber-wealthy and the have-nots comes into full display in Parasite, which arrived on 4K Ultra HD Digital as well as Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand in January from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and NEON. Fans can now delve deep into the mind of filmmaker Bong Joon Ho, and the symbolism behind the film with an exclusive Q&A bonus feature with the acclaimed director.

In Parasite, meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth and the Kim family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.
Now you really have no excuse to have not seen it.
