This film is a piece of narrative art—the way the characters grow and turn is incredible. The pace is perfect, almost like a piece of classical music that builds and builds to the perfect crescendo.

I completely agree that the pace of this film is perfect, and it does have a distinct rhythm that feels as if it can only be achieved by a master of cinema such as Bong Joon-ho. I'm equally in awe of the tone if this film, which reminds me of the delicate balance of consequence and humor in "The Host". As always, the world of this story is rich with detail and the entire cast delivers pitch-perfect performances.

This film is brilliant! The score, the performances, the cinematography -- all masterfully done!. Not only is it a cinematic masterpiece, but the symbolism and themes makes its a purely enjoyable movie-watching experience. It's an important look at classism and wealth inequality, and truly one of the most unforgettable films of 2019.
