The Secret of the “Perfect Montage” at the Heart of Parasite, the Korean Film Now Sweeping World Cinema.
South Korean film Parasite has been named best picture at this year's Oscars, becoming the first non-English language film to take the top prize.

The seventh feature film by director Bong Joon-ho, released in 2019, is the kind of a black comedy. The film reveals the bare face of modern society through a meeting between the upper and lower classes and two families. Full of metaphors and symbols, "PARASITE" is the winner of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or and the 77th Golden Globe Foreign Language Film. It was recently nominated for six awards at the Oscar. (updated: “Parasite” is now the first non-English film to win best picture at the Academy Awards: BEST PICTURE // DIRECTING // INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM // WRITING (ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY), 02.09, 2020)

Let's go inside the movie. The bottom video is a description about Montage of the movie 'PARASITE', which tells the scenes about metaphors and symbols that are revealed all over the screen. 

For nearly as long as mankind has tried to commit the perfect crime, mankind has tried to tell stories of the perfect crime. Both endeavors demand intensive planning, the story of the crime perhaps even more rigorously so than the crime itself. No less obsessive a teller and reteller of "perfect crime" stories than Alfred Hitchcock knew that well, and so he remains an icon of such storytelling in cinema. Hence the visual reference, albeit a vanishingly brief one, to the master of suspense in Korean blockbuster auteur Bong Joon-ho's Parasite, which has run victory laps around the world ever since winning the Palme d'Or last year. Or so Evan Puschak, better known as the Nerdwriter, tells it in his new video essay on Parasite's "perfect montage." by Colin Marshall

Below, as an added bonus, you can watch the director himself break down Parasite's opening scene:

Writer-director, Bong Joon-ho, and actor, Woo-sik Choi, break down the symbolism of the gift scene in their critically-acclaimed foreign film, 'Parasite.' They take us through the bizarre moment we first see the scholar stone and explain how scavenging for set materials and costume design helped create a world that highlights the disparities of wealth and poverty.
