‘Parasite’ Wins Made Oscars 2020 the Most Satisfying in Years — IndieWire’s Movie Podcast

When “Parasite” made history on Oscar night, the enthusiasm for the outcome reached unparalleled heights. One year after the divisive “Green Book” victory, Bong Joon Ho’s dark story of class warfare swept the ceremony, taking home a record four awards for one man and becoming the first non-English-language film in history to win Best Picture.
