            One scene among hundreds in a +3-hour film. Yes, it's badly done, but specially so if it's watched detached in a webm. In the film itself, it's not too important or notable.

              I definitely noticed it immediately. I thought the whole movie was bland except the final scene where moron Deniro plays himself in not quite knowing what to say, which actually works really well in that scene for the character. Apart from that final scene there isn't a single thing that I liked about the movie and it's 9 hours long.

          Thanks for actually giving an answer. I liked Parasite but I agree that Joker was better and more engaging. The poor people oppression themes was also more insightful as well, even though it's super on the nose. I don't think the Irishman compares to either film though, honestly and thanks for reminding me to watch Shoplifters.

          The Irishman and Joker are not better than Parasite at all, I mean everyone has their opinion and shit, but I really don't see how they're better. The Irishman was Scorcese on autopilot, Joker was a more bombastic variant on The King of Comedy.
          Yes, thematically Parasite is not something incredible, but in terms of directing and overall concept it's an extremely entertaining and stylish twister.

    Its funny how normies think rich family = villains, poor family = heroes. Because all westoids can only think in binary good and evil, jedi vs sith.
    Also because most of them are “poor” (in comparison to the ultra rich) so they are just terrible at hiding their jealousy and hate for people who are better off than them.

      What exactly was excellent about it?
      It was a bland plot that wasn't even good enough for a full movie so they had to throw in a ridiculous twist at the end.
      Woah, a poor family of extremely competent conmen who can pretend to be high class drivers, high class nannies, forgers of documents, and so on, meanwhile the best they could come up with before having this opportunity handed on a silver platter was folding fricking pizza boxes, and even then apparently 1 in 4 was done wrong. Pizza boxes.

              You know the gullibility of the rich family was the main factor in their “success” right?

              Yeah, they fricked up, but they still had standards that the poors managed to pass. The guy was actually a good tutor and managed to get that underaged chick (and her mom) hot and heavy, the sister was resourceful and clever in tons of ways both in regard to her job (making shit up for the art therapy) and also for the others (photoshopping, pretending to be working for a company that connected her mom, etc.), the mother managed to play her role convincingly, the father was a good enough driver that the rich father employed him and continued to employ him despite the fact that he thought he smelled bad and crossed lines in how he spoke to him. This entire family has all these capabilities that they've apparently been sitting on this whole time, and yet before this golden opportunity just dropped in their lap the best they could do was sit around and fold fricking pizza boxes for money. Not even just one of them, all 4 of them were doing it together.
              Bunch of moronic slackers who also happen to be fully capable at pretending to be professionals. Not to mention their whole Mission Impossible bit where they work to poison the nanny so she gets fired.
              And anyone with half a brain should see them as a bunch of pieces of shit for all that they did, even if you think rich people deserve it or whatever, the family also fricked over the driver and majorly fricked the nanny (all just for more money, even though the guy and his sister were already employed and paid well, very sympathetic).

            Yeah but you're implying that they're fricking up pizza boxes as some sort of skill issue. They just don't give a frick. I'm sure if folding pizza boxes would set them up in a mansion like the piss easy jobs they accepted did they would though.

        I think the film accurately shows that this was largely just about image and adherence to the hierarchical rules, rather than any skill they could deliver. The sister knows some photoshop basics and it ends up being irrelevant because the wife is not actually interested in the credentials.

      Your issue is that you seem to think film needs to be an accurate portrayal of reality, even down to the actors physically experiencing the role they are in. Also most of the LA acting is completely different than anime VAs. Unless they're trying to adapt anime to live action and completely throw nuance out the window.

          There is no rural stuff in Parasite. They have very different stories and tones. The only thing you could really hold them to is that they feature unexpected violence at the end. I like Burning a lot and the frequent mentions of it along side this film are very unbecoming and a little embarrassing, to count myself as a fan when many of them seem insecure of Parasite's success. They're not similar enough to warrant it.
