“Parasite is for many already an undeniable cinematic masterpiece. But for director Bong Joon Ho, it was his desire to create such a work of art that drove him to cut a black-and-white version of film. ‘I think it may be vanity on my part, but when I think of the classics, they’re all in black and white,’ he said. ‘So I had this idea that if I turned my films into black and white then they’d become classics.’ Bong explained that, as a child growing up in South Korea, his mother wouldn’t allow him to visit the cinema for fear of ‘bacteria’, so he watched all the masterpieces at home on a black-and-white tv. The new version of Parasite was actually made before the original colour edition had its premiere in Cannes… Bong, with his director of photographer and colourist, worked on the new grading shot by shot.”  – Alex Ritman, Hollywood Reporter
