A slick killer walks the streets, and an obsessed detective equally prone to violence is determined to stop him. It builds to the expected climax between the two, but even there Lee makes choices that feel atypical for the genre. All names, trademarks and images are copyright their respective owners. His investigation quickly reveals locals unwilling to help and a darkness that might not be done claiming victims. Retreat some years more and we see him as an idealistic young man, making friends and making plans with other college kids looking forward to a life of possibilities ahead. Parasite absolutely deserves the honor, but even better, the win is moving people toward seeking out other South Korean films too. Yoo Sang-hwan is much younger but headed towards an equally miserable future as his criminal efforts land him in jail. Fans of slow burn thrillers, Korean or otherwise, owe it to themselves to seek out this grimly beautiful and atmospheric tale.
