Bong Joon Ho’s best picture winner “Parasite” and his film “Memories of Murder” from 2003 will be released as part of the Criterion Collection, the “Parasite” distributor Neon and Criterion said on Thursday.
There is no scheduled release date yet for the special home video releases or if the movies will be immediately available for streaming on The Criterion Channel. However, it rarely happens that Criterion works with a distributor to release a film specifically in the cinemas.
Criterion has just released a special edition of Netflix’s “Roma” that was nominated for the best picture in 2019, and Criterion recently partnered with Neon on Celine Sciamma’s “Portrait of a Burning Lady”, which was released in cinemas this weekend appears.

Bong’s “Memories of Murder” was released in 2003 and was the first of Bong’s collaboration with Song Kang Ho. Neon has also recently acquired the rights to the haunting crime drama and will release it again in cinemas before the home video is released.
“Parasite” just won four Oscars on Sunday, including “Best Director”, “Best International Film”, “Best Original Screenplay” and “Best Film”. It was the first non-English language film to win the main Oscar award. Bong’s film premiered in Cannes and won the Palme d’Or. Since his debut in American cinemas in October, he has grossed over $ 35 million at his box office.
The film is a desolate satire of wealth and the class distinctions about a poor family strategically working to install themselves in luxury jobs for a gullible and unsuspecting wealthy family, only to discover a dark secret in the family home.
