That shot of Jessica lighting a cigarette over her exploding toilet is mindblowing.

Both Jessica and the rich husband have the exact same shot in the bath tub, in the end it's both of them who die

Fun fact(don’t read if you don’t want spoilers): the sexual scene that was included in the movie was also intended to make the audience feel like the family itself. Since people most likely are watching it with friends or family members, the feeling of discomfort seeing that scene is the same as the poor family as they hid under the table and had no choice other than to wait it out.

The actress playing the rich wife/mother is underrated. She had to play someone who is still likable even though you're also gonna hate her.

Edit: I guess some people didn't pick up her snobby side. There wasn't suppose to be an obvious villain in the character--each had bad and good side. The rich wife/mother did things like put her feet near the face of poor father/husband when he was driving which is really disrespectful in Asian culture. She threw in English to show off her education/class. She treated drug addiction like a sex kink.

The Korean title of Parasite (기생충) is Ki Seng Chung. The poor family son, daughter and father's names are Ki Woo, Ki Jung and Ki Taek. Part of their names have part of the word Parasite in it. I think there was a conscious effort because you never have father and son/daughter have the same middle name. It's just not done.

The black noodle dish in the movie called RamDon (made up name for translation-actual called Champagetti) is a combination of $.60 instant noodle and the most expensive Wagyu beef of Korea. This is a combination of extreme ingredients. There must me a metaphor there.

The poor dad being coached how to act by the poor son was an inside joke for Koreans. Kang-Ho Song (dad) is the Tom Hanks of Korea. Choi Woo-shik is just an up and coming actor.

FUN FACT: Yang Jin-Mo the editor used 11 year old discontinued software final cut pro 7 to edit. He's nominated for best editing at the Oscars this year.

I love how the meaning behind Parasite is that we are all parasites, feeding off the work of others. From the main family living as parasites in the rich home, to the man in the basement as a literal parasite, to the rich parasitically living on the labour of the working class, everyone is selfishly dependant on other people. Even you are a parasite by using the work of Bong Joon-ho to make money, and I'm a parasite for even daring to analyse this film. Truly a masterpiece and I'm really glad it won Best Picture.

The way they showed that old housekeeper in the video door bell makes her look something sinister.

Did you notice that the paint that the little kid drew is actually the face of the guy who lived basement

Notice how the kid adoptes this Native persona while how his Art Tutor adoptes the American identity. The American invades the Native's land. Also note how the first time we meet the kid, he shoots an arrow, indicating the start of battle for his land.

Parasite is not just a movie, it's an experience.

There’s something strangely satisfying about them going over the Jessica from Illinois in front of the doorbell

You’re wrong about the music used dude. It sounds like a classical piece but it’s actually an original, composed by Jung Jael, called Belt of Faith. It’s similar to Vivaldi in many aspects. Unfortunately, you do the composer a disservice.

Please do better research next time. Fantastic video otherwise.

I love the part where 'hitting-the-Send-button' becomes the new 'held-at-gunpoint' moment for today's age.

In the gym, the father and son had a discussion and the father said, "You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan. No plan at all. You know why? Because life cannot be planned." which means plans=never work. In the ending of the movie, the son says he's PLANNING to be rich so he can someday buy the house and see/live with his father again and give him freedom from his confinement in the basement. That is how we know that the son will never rise from his social status. He won't be able to buy that house, ever. :(
