If you’re anything like me, Parasite was one of the few things that brought you joy last year. Amid the global insurgence of wealth inequality, not to mention the gradual destruction of the planet, the film managed to criticize the systemic root of those problems while refraining from overly ham-fisted evangelizing. Its message universal and increasingly relevant, Parasite has since gone on to win four Oscars—including Best Picture—for 2020. For Prime Day, Amazon is selling Parasite for $15 on Blu-ray, down 40% from what it was previously.
For those left wanting more after watching Parasite, The Host, an earlier Bong Joon-Ho film from 2006, is also discounted, to $9 on the site. While I haven’t seen it myself, my partner explained to me that The Host is about a giant mutant creature that emerges after the U.S. military dumps a bunch of toxic waste in Seol’s Han River. Also that second part happened in real life.
In other words, this is exactly my shit.
