Parasite is a story like I've never seen before. The acting was perfect, the cinematography is great, the score is wonderful, but the story is what i loved the most. I went into Parasite with the misinformation that it was a horror and no other information. I'd recommend not looking up any plot information because experiencing it blind was the perfect experience. Parasite works on so many levels that if you just want a comprehensive story that you don't have to have to dig deep into to get meaning and enjoyment, Parasite is fun, shocking, and kind of funny. I loved every character and the chemistry between them all felt very real. If you are someone who wants to rip a movie apart and look at every element under a microscope for symbolism and can't get anything out of a film that isn't stuffed full of allegory, Parasite has a lot to say and it's in every fiber of the movie. The reason Parasite speaks to so many people is that it has a fairly universal message that it tells on multiple levels. I hate movies like Mother! that only work as a series of metaphors and are barely even a story at surface level. If you can get beyond the bar of reading subtitles, Parasite has something or someone you can connect to. I wish the plot was more evenly distributed and we didn't rush through the last half hour, but otherwise I can't find any big faults.
