Screenplay Sunday – Parasite

Over the years I have found myself collecting and saving Screenplays from some of my favourite films. I have therefore decided to start a new feature Screenplay Sunday where I will be posting a film screenplay each week!

I thought what better way to start it than with Parasite?

Oscars 2020 – Best Picture

This year was certainly some kind of record of watching all the Best Picture nominees before the end of January, I mean even when the nominations were announced I only had Parasite left to see. Hopefully that is a good sign for the future and allowing better UK release dates for the awards buzz films. It can easily get frustrating at times and this year only one film out of the nine was a film I disliked intensely. I adore and love Jojo Rabbit, so much I have set a new cinema viewing record of five for that amazing film. With that I really liked and enjoyed the rest of the films. Which I guess is not bad at all and I feel that this years nominees are a lot stronger than last years! Just incase you haven’t heard about these films enough lets take one final look at them before the Academy Awards take place on Sunday!

They are struggling to survive and don’t really have much ambition between them. Even though Ki-woo and Ki-Jung have impressive skills. When an opportunity arrises to work for the wealthy Park family a plan is put in place.

*Original title – Gisaengchung

Bob Harris is a faded movie star who is in Tokyo to film a whiskey ad for the Japanese market. Staying in the same hotel is a young twenty something woman Charlotte is left on her own while her husband a photographer is working.
