The Kims, who live in relative poverty, manage, through multiple tricks of privilege, to infiltrate the fancy and stylish dwelling of the wealthy Parks. With his dizzying blend of tones, Bong addresses social inequalities, greed, and violence between social classes in what is a perfect comedy until it becomes a tragedy. A masterful command of insular settings, camera movements, composition, and set design lets the filmmaker “experiment with searing imagery that uses human faces and domestic space to create visions of hilarity as well as pure horror” (The Atlantic).
