Greener Grass went under the radar last year. Only if you like your cinema really weird.

"Parasite" is a twisty, bloody thrill ride that is best enjoyed if you go in blind.
"Don't look up anything prior," advises actress Park So-dam. "Just come in without any expectation and no knowledge of the film."

One of the best movies last year, or widely regarded as. At least as far as camerawork goes, it's in the master class. It's a wild ride anyway, and definitely worth a viewing. Going in blind is a must.
