Such horrific and realism in a film is hard to pull off but this movie does that without loosing the core of the film about the horror of having people (maids, butlers) live in your house.

I mean reading the subtitles for that long have me a headache but overall pretty good. Positives: - Really showed the true side of the class system. - So suspenseful all the way through! - The ending where he comes out of hiding and just shoots everyone?! - Class system as in: The family that overthrows the other family works for them, and decides they have had enough of living in poverty while they live in wealth. Negatives: - Slow at the beginning building up to them finally getting into the house. - Not annoying, but the subtitle gave me a headache. - I liked it, but I do not want to watch it all of the time. Overall: 4 out of 5 Stars

Well, I finally understand the hype surrounding this film. The familial interactions, the fraud, even the comedy; the thrill of it all was so immense. I don’t know much about Korean culture, but this film presented it in a way that could easily be enjoyed by anyone from anywhere in the world. I was sitting at a 9/10 for the majority of this film, but the ending does SO MUCH to tie this story into a nice bow and end the film in a tragic but hopeful way. This film is very unique, and I’d love to see more projects like it in the future.

I thought the movie was good. It's a bit weird. The first half is a comedy and the second half is a horror film. It definitely has some interesting themes explored around morality, ethics, and socio-economic classes. I enjoyed the movie and thought it was good, but I think it was heavily overhyped, and a bit overrated. I wouldn't call it the best movie ever, but definitely an interesting watch.

Watch it, tell you grandchildren about it some day, this Korean movie should be the pride and joy of the movie industry. It was probably in the short life's of best movies in my books.

I wasn’t crazy about it as much as others. I get it’s masterful in its technique; full of metaphors and foreshadowing and all that. And visually encapsulating. Not sure the final act worked for me. Need to watch again probably.

Terechte Oscar winnaar. Verhaal als een ui: heel veel laagjes. Doordat het een film uit Korea is zit ie vol met frisse ideeën en referenties, echt de moeite waard.

FINALLY I got around to watching this. It was SO GOOD. I had no idea what it was about going into it, with low risk it was super high-brow and not interesting. Great plot line with twists and turns. Totally beautifully filmed with stunning eye for shots. Music was excellent - loved the juxtaposition of calming classical music over total chaos. Gives a real flavour of Korean life - from the food, down to the architecture and cities.

What the fuck even? Lol this movie was GRAND. And insanely messed up all at the same time. Karma is indeed a bitch...you’ll know what I mean when you see it.

Extremely overrated. The amount of acclaim and awards this movie received is an insult to movies like Train To Busan and Oldboy.

This is one of those movies you have to watch multiple times to peel layers. Each experience of this movie makes me think and reflect and I'm grateful for it.

Finally got round to watching the last of the 2019 films and what a way to conclude them! This masterpiece absolutely swept up at the oscars and deservedly so. A true modern great of cinema. This one is a must watch. Really sucks you in with the lighthearted nature of a family barely getting by leaching off anything they could find for their benefit to one of the darkest turns i’ve ever seen on screen. The plot is clever, fast paced, and easy to follow even in a foreign language. Really enjoyed seeing the family sneak their way into eventually coming together and being employed under the one rich household. Eventually, the minute the family become content with life, plots take a turn for the worse and this is where the film really starts to go up a gear. Would really recommend as it has everything a movie needs. Drama, comedy, crime, romance and mystery Exceptional film. 9/10
