Wisecrack commentary on "Joker" and "Parasite"

In my review of "Parasite," I argued that director Bong Joon-ho had crafted a Marxist tract, and that the film needs to be read through a Marxist lens to make sense. The following Wisecrack video basically agrees with me; the video takes the interesting step of comparing the messages of both "Parasite" and "The Joker," two movies that seem to be making claims about the power of society over the individual.
