Jenifan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Absolutely perfect. Not a single weak point. Everything from the brilliant acting, the masterful directing, the witty writing, the mesmerizing music, the breathtaking cinematography, the sharp editing. All those elements fit so perfectly into one another to create this cinematic ballet about social inequality and the class structure.
Bong Joon Ho has cemented himself as one of the top filmmakers in recent history and also my favorite director of all time. He is a master of his craft and his skill at telling a story is incomparable to anyone in the field right now. The way he balances emotions and tone in this film is outstanding. He'll have you belly-laughing one moment, then have you sit at the edge of your seat the next, and even make you shed a tear. His sense of humor and style is right up my alley, which is why I have a blast watching his movies. All his movies are fantastic. But this? This is his magnum opus.
If you are going to watch this, don't read up anything and go in cold. You will not regret it. The best film to come out of 2019 and one of the greatest films of the decade and, quite possibly, of all time.
Also, that garden party scene. Holy shit is all I can say.
