Posted in: Trump scoffs at 'Parasite' Oscar win See in context

I read the plot of "Parasite", but did not see the movie . . . how can one compare this type of movie with "Gone With the Wind" - both are about a different time and place.  Though "Sunset Boulevard" which I have also not seen, but read the summary of - sounds a little more like "Parasite" -- both involved a person's difficulty dealing with their situation - but choose a violent outcome - both are "film noir".  It's up to the Academy not up to us.
