On a recent airplane flight I watched a Korean film Parasite. What a mind-trip! I didn’t realize till just now, revisiting the topic of the “Asian two-act structure” I had asked before, that maybe what they did was this Two-act flipperoo.
The first act was a comedy of errors. The second/final act was a slasher film. Such an unexpected flip. Has anyone seen it?
It was traumatic because it changed genres truly unexpectedly. Startling. It won all sorts of awards, too. I’m wondering how that works with screenwriting to a storyform.
