Parasite: The Korean film that feels very American

Who in this family is the subterranean pizza box-making champion?

Parasite, the Palme d’Or winner at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is the main topic of this week’s podcast. This week Jim and Teal got off track from the get-go, and began the discussion with James Cameron’s Director’s Cut of Aliens. Next Jim talked about another Herschell Gordon Lewis film, The Gore Gore Girls, which Jim claimed was the best worst film he’s ever seen.

Jim went on another long-distance film quest, this time to see The Lighthouse, which Jim insists Teal must see. It may be more style than substance, but it has loads of style to spare. And with director Robert Eggers at the helm, style is the substance.

Next it was on to the main event, Boon Joon Ho’s Parasite. Jim and Teal both saw it, and they have a lot to say. The conversation has *Spoilers* that begin at around the 29 minute mark. So if you haven’t seen Parasite, and don’t want to know too much, enjoy the first half hour of the Podcast and save the rest for later.

At the end of the episode, Jim and Teal began to discuss a hidden gem, but Teal’s audio got disconnected so it will be talked about at a later date.

Enjoy!
