Choi taek

choi taek

Major spoilers ahead choi taek Parasite. Bong Joon-ho’s masterful film Parasite is a wicked and brutal satire about wealth disparity. The film’s setup has a poor family, the Kims, infiltrating the lives of a wealthy family, the Parks, by becoming their new employees. Kim Ki-woo ( Woo-sik Choi) is legitimately a tutor for the Parks’ daughter Da-hye ( Jung Ziso), but he uses his standing to then usher in his sister Ki-jung ( So-dam Park), who poses as an art tutor for the Parks’ young son, Da-song ( Hyun-jun Jung).

The Kim kids then frame the Parks’ driver for being a creep, which allows them to bring in their own father, Ki-taek ( Kang-ho Sang), for the job. Finally, the family gets rid of the Parks’ housekeeper, Moon-gwang ( Jeong-eun Lee), by making her seem sickly due to a peach allergy, which paves the way for the Kims’ mother, Chung-sook ( Hye-jin Jang), to get the gig.

The Parks don’t learn that the Kims are related, and everything seems to be going fine until they choi taek that Moon-gwang has been hiding her husband, Geun-se ( Myeong-hoon Park), in the Parks’ basement. Image via Neon/CJ Entertainment This all leads to a twisted resolution where Geun-se escapes the basement, gives a head injury to Ki-woo and kills Ki-jung, and is killed by Ki-taek, choi taek also kills the Park family’s patriarch Park Dong-ik ( Sun-kyun Lee) after he recoils at Geun-se’s “poor man’s smell.” Ki-taek then flees the scene.

No one knows where Ki-taek went, but Ki-woo discovers that a light in the Parks’ house, where they have since moved out and another family has moved in, is flickering in Morse code. He deciphers the code and discovers that Ki-taek is alive and now living in the basement. We then see a sequence where Ki-woo plans to make enough money to buy the house and free his father.

However, the scenes of Ki-woo buying the house follow are just in Ki-woo’s head. We’re brought back into reality by the closing shots of the film, not of Ki-woo in the house freeing his father as part of a victorious montage. The movie ends with Ki-woo back in his own basement, just as imprisoned as his father but by economic circumstances rather than legal ones.

But that’s what makes the ending such a gut-punch: it’s about a fantasy. We know that Ki-woo will never earn enough money to buy the house because Parasite shows that economic mobility is dead. The Kims aren’t a “lazy” family who are simply avoiding hard work.

They may be conniving and duplicitous, but they don’t expect others to do their jobs for them, which is more than can be said for the Parks. The Kims’ station in life is set, and it’s only through duplicity that they can even come close to choi taek wealth that the Parks possess.

For their part, the movie asks if the Parks—wealthy idiots who are dependent on a lower class—aren’t the real “parasites”, who give nothing back and don’t really care about anyone other than themselves.

When the slums get flooded and people who have lost choi taek little they had are sleeping in a gym, the Parks are more concerned with a Cowboys-and-Indians-themed birthday party for Da-song. Image via Neon/CJ Entertainment The bleakness of the ending is that the only way to free Ki-taek is impossible. Granted, he could just turn himself in, but then he’d just be in another prison or he’d get the death penalty, so he may as well stay in the basement. The prison of wealth is what entraps the Kims in the first place.

Yes, they are “parasites” in a sense choi taek they feed off the wealthy Park family, but the lavishness of the Parks’ wealth was never going to come to the Kims. The idea of wealth becomes both a fantasy and a prison for the Kim family, something they’ll chase but never achieve.

They’re stuck where they are—Ki-taek in a basement and Ki-woo only able to look at the house from a distance. These days, there’s a lot of talk about “income inequality”, which is an oddly hopeful phrase because it implies that we can just rebalance the scales somehow through economic programs and government intervention. Parasite is far more pessimistic, arguing that economic immobility is the new normal, and that those who are born poor will die poor and those who are rich will die rich.

The fantasy of upward economic mobility is Ki-woo’s fantasy. If it was as choi taek as just getting rich and buying that house, why would he have been living in a slum in the first place? It’s a nice thought that he could become rich and buy the house to free his father and they’d all live happily ever after, but that’s never going to happen.

The action is quite something by the female boxing champ. Convincing. The faults are glaring - a lack of continuity in the story telling. Also the choi taek around in time breaks up the tension - should have been chronological. Why the sister got into so much trouble is a bit too much. Harder to stomach than the choi taek the top fight sequences. Not quite worth watching.

A skilled Korean archer goes up against the mighty force of Manchus with the sole purpose of rescuing his kidnapped sister. A skilled Korean archer goes up against the mighty force of Manchus with the sole purpose of rescuing his kidnapped sister. Released in 2011, "War of the Arrows" is set during the second Manchu invasion of Korea where Korean Nam Yi, an expert archer, pursues the Manchurians to save his younger sister Ja-In, who was dragged off by the invaders.

The tone is akin to 2006' "Apocalypto" and, while the plots are similar, the protagonist in "War of the Arrows" is the hunter rather than the escapee; not to mention his loved ones have choi taek captured by the enemy and torn from their homes, not hidden somewhere near their village.

Imagine the excellent TV series "Vikings," but with way more action and set in 17th century Korea. Choi taek is a top-of-the-line adventure/action flick with awesome forest cinematography, superb costuming, effective score, convincing acting and consistent thrills.

All you have to do is persevere through the first half hour and then it's non-stop-thrills from there. There are some flaws, like the villagers being wholly surprised by the Manchurian attack to the point of obliviously performing their regular activities to the very moment the horsemen strike by the sword; even a wedding ceremony is completely surprised. Why sure! The chasm sequence is also weak because the warriors wouldn't be able to successfully jump across unless it was 20' wide or less, but it looks much wider.

Then there's the lame tiger CGI. Despite these negatives, this is an eminent adventure/action flick. Unless you speak Korean you'll have to click on the English audio or subtitles on the DVD. The film runs 128 minutes and was shot in South Korea. GRADE: B+
