    The trailer for “Parasite” was released today. Palme d’Or winner that could made Academy history for South Korea.

    Trailer looks fantastic!

    This looks….dope. I think this trailer is about all the exposure I need to this film prior to seeing it so the supposed twists and turns aren’t ruined. Definitely looks like a visually thrilling film and I’ll be interested to see if it breaks into the race outside of International Film, where I have to imagine it is a frontrunner.

    That trailer’s definitely grabbed my attention. I’ll definitely have to see this. Looks like we have a frontrunner for Foreign Language Film.

    It’s a good (perhaps even very good!) film, and easily one of the best from Bong.

    Creates a great balance between family drama and class satire.

    This is still easily my favorite film that I’ve seen this year, should be more in the conversation for screenplay and directing. Hopefully Bong gets his overdue Oscar recognition after The Host, Mother, and Snowpiercer

    I think it’s a good film. The second act is very suspenseful and is the peak of the film. But I didn’t like the contrived climax. Also, the rushed ending didn’t make me feel any emotion personally. Generally, I liked Shoplifters more.

    I think I will like Portrait of a Lady on Fire more, but we’ll see.

    This movie has to be nominated for Best Foreign Language. It’s probably the best movie I’ve seen so far this year.

    Those who have seen it, could it have an Academy play outside of International Film? I’ve seen talk of it having a run similar to Cold War with possibilities of it breaking into directing/screenplay, but the horror/thriller vibe I got from that trailer makes me think it won’t be so fortunate. Nonetheless, I can’t wait to check it out!

    ^ the Academy’s bias against Asian movies is real. So I’m not sure, but I do like this better than Cold War, which was my no1 fave last year.
    It’s a massive crowd pleaser I have to say, so let’s cross our fingers.

    Director and original screenplay appear to be the only two places outside International film where Parasite may pick up nomination. What gives Bong a boost, aside from the fact that his film is excellent is that he has worked with a number of members of the Hollywood community

    The film is great and one of my favourites of the year so far (one of three five-starrers for me).

    However, it stands a limited chance of nods outside of International Film. It’s not your typical Oscar foreign language sweeper like Amour, Roma, Letters from Iwo Jima, Life Is Beautiful, La Vie En Rose etc.

    It’s very current, thrilling and tense.

    Typically foreign language films need to be European (if not, they need to be written/directed by Academy darlings), and/or be period pieces to get Oscar love.

    It deserves Director, screenplay, score, cinematography, editing and maybe one or two acting nods too alongside Best Picture for me. It would certainly deserve an Ensemble nod if such an Oscar category existed, too.

    If it plays well on screener it can easily get nominated for Picture, Director, Screenplay, and maybe Production Design in addition to International Film (where it is certainly a frontrunner). A lot of this is because of the recent voter expansion, and I’m glad for that.

    Having seen it, it is DEFINITELY in the running for not only Best International Feature but also Screenplay and Director…maybe even Best Picture, if they play their cards right. But especially Screenplay, the writers will eat this thing up. It’s such a brilliantly constructed script.

    No, it’s not a horror film. It’s got thriller elements. It defies genre but if I was forced to classify it, it would be a black comedy-thriller. It’s weird but not TOO weird. It’s quite accessible.

    Bong Joon-ho has already dipped his toes in Hollywood so he’s a known commodity. That plus the expansion of the membership to include more diverse and international members will give him a leg up. It will also play well in a screener.

    Excited to see this at Fantastic Fest.

    But even if it’s truly the masterpiece it’s being hailed as, I don’t know if I trust Neon to get a foreign language film into BP when it couldn’t even get I, Tonya in.
