Just saw Parasite the South Korean movie on my kids recommendation. What a delightfully discomforting film. A bizarre look at social status, the state of the world…and the parasitic nature of the Materialistic Hope we all feed and live off!!

A bizarre look at social status, the state of the world…and the parasitic nature of the Materialistic Hope we all feed and live off!!”
