Parasite ★★★★★

Watched the black and white edition. I remember telling a friend of mine that if a movie has colours it has to justify why the use of colour instead of the black and white. This is not true, I probably wanted to make a point about the importance of colour or the importance of its absence. "Parasite" is a filme where the use of colour gives an extra layer to the film. Moods, plot points and the dramatic realism of the picture are all affected without it.

The black and white does give it a nice look and there are some scenes where it is simply beautiful. However, I think "Parasite" benefits on its colours, and the complexity of the world is further incread with the whole range of light and colour of it.
