*Jeez, how many more versions and special nights are we gonna get? We just told you about the screening with live music!? If you've missed this movie so far, you've just not been trying to see it.

Director Bong Joon Ho shares a love of classic black-and-white films with his cameraman, Hong Kyungpyo. Having previously made a special black-and-white version of MOTHER (2009), he felt the urge again with PARASITE. "I'm sure everyone will have a different opinion about this version. Personally, I think all the characters look even more poignant, and that the distinctions between the three different spaces where the families live, with all the shades of grey, are even more tragic.”

"Paprika is one of his wildest mind-bending creations of all. In the near-future (it feels like all these anime intros begin with “in the near future”), there is a device called the “DC Mini” which allows Dr. Atsuko Chiba to enter the dreams of her patients (using her alter-ego “Paprika”) to help try to discover the root of their fears, anxieties, and hang ups."
