I knew I had to see the movie Parasite as soon as I saw the trailer last fall. I rarely go to the movies, but last November, a friend and I immediately made plans to see the South Korean film when we learned it would come to an independent theater in our college town. Frustratingly, after we arrived at the first screening of the weekend, the theater ran into technical difficulties; we had to leave halfway through the movie and return later to watch the second half. In hindsight, though, I’m glad we did. The emotional sucker punch that is Parasite would have been overwhelming for me to view all at once.
