Trickling Down

I’m going to say the same thing as every other film critic this weekend: Go see Parasite. It’s brilliant, it’s funny, it’s chilling and it’s playing on like five screens at the Varsity this weekend so you can be reasonably sure of getting a ticket. But if you’ve already seen it. or you’re uneasy in a crowded auditorium, there are some other movies opening today as well.

But go see Parasite.

April in Autumn: Sisters reconnect, make each other miserable.

By the Grace of God: Francois Ozon tackles Catholic abuse, trauma.

Greener Grass: Suburban satire seems slightly superficial, somehow.

The King: Uneasy is the Chalamet, something something.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil: Angelina Jolie gets all horned up again.

Parasite: Best movie of the year? Possibly.

The River You Step In: Toronto gentrification drama asks questions, lingers. [Rad]

Zombieland: Double Tap: Wasn’t expecting much. Kinda liked it.

I also reviewed Netflix’ Living with Yourself and HBO’s Watchmen, because this is what I do and “free time” is an illusion.

Watchmen‘s pretty great, though. Premieres on Sunday night, so you have plenty of time to catch Parasite first.
