RE: First Korean flick?

Spoiler alert

I have no problem with violence in films but here I didn't really buy into Father Kim's attack on father Park. Yes Park made comments about Kim having a smell (the smell of poverty) but the Park's were not in their face about it and if the Kim's hadn't been "parasites" and eavesdropping they were private conversations.

I don't necessarily think movies have to have any likeable characters but generally I think a film like this does need someone with which to follow and Parasite doesn't really have one.

Joker is similarly a class warfare film with a similar social commentary about the rich Wayne family and Arthur Fleck living with his mom in a ratty ole building borderline functioning with government provided medications and counselling. Arthur Fleck - isn't particularly likeable but he is pitiable. He is human. Whereas the characters in Parasite are there to fit archetypes.

I generally prefer movies where I have characters I get involved with in some fashion and if those characters are drawn well I will probably like the movie even if it has a bunch of other problems.
