Episode Notes

On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full spoiler-filled detail. This week, Dana Stevens, Forrest Wickman, and Inkoo Kang discuss Parasite. With Hitchcock-like quality, Bong Joon-ho plays with the audience in the upstairs/downstairs dive into economic inequality. The Kims, stuck on their low social rung, jump at the opportunity to latch on to an affluent family. But how long can they keep the ruse up? What will they do to keep up the charade?

You can read Dana Stevens’ review here.
