Parasite, a Patriarchal Narrative: Repeating Stereotypes of Female Behaviour

In the article, the author analyses Parasite, a film directed by Joon-ho Bong. The film was nominated for and won a number of awards, among them the Palme d'Or at the Cannes film festival and four Oscars (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film). The analysis shows that western reception of the film is based on false assumptions about South Korean society, where the collapse of the middle class is becoming more and more evident and neoliberalism is starting to prevail. The analysis is based on a critical assesment of the representation of individual characters and shows that the film is imbued with misogyny and male-centered power, and how gender and capitalistic hierarchy manipulate emotions and control behavior.
