    Go see this film if you can. It is the best movie of the year by far.

    It won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival this year as well

    Crazy stuff. Never thought it would be that good.

    I watched it Sunday night. I went to work the next day and told my coworkers that I watched a good movie over the weekend. They were all interested until I mentioned "Korean" and "subtitles". Oh well. They're loss.

    It is distributed in the US by Alamo Drafthouse's Neon brand - it won't likely end up streaming anytime soon. I believe Oct 24 was the north american release date OTOH.

    Here's what i said about it in the indie movie thread after seeing it last week. And a week later, after the post viewing buzz has worn off a bit, i can still confidently say that it was my favorite movie of the year.

    "I've seen a lot of movies this year (have had Regal Unlimited since it came out, before that was still doing at least 3 movies a month via MoviePass), and I'm pretty confident to say that Parasite was my favorite movie of the year. And seems like its best to know as little about it as possible, i had a basic idea and that was perfect (but also knowing that it had great reviews thus far). I'll definitely be recommending it to anyone who asks about it and will certainly be telling some close friends and family to check it out."

    I just enjoy being able to plop right down, getting water, refillable popcorn, and enjoyable pre-trailer videos related to the genre

    I saw it a Regal, but it's only showing at 2 of the Regals in town (out of 5 total in greater Houston) and a few other major chain theaters (AMC & Cinemark), along with one small indie theater and an Alamo Drafthouse.
