Four Oscars. Two BAFTAs. A Golden Globe. A Palme d’Or.
By most accounts, South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s critically acclaimed film ‘‘Parasite’’ — a provocative commentary on class warfare packaged into a dark comedic thriller — deserved all the awards it received.
President Trump disagrees, though he admitted that he doesn’t know whether the film is good because he had not seen it.
On Thursday night, Trump bemoaned the movie’s historic best picture win at the Academy Awards earlier this month.
‘‘And the winner is a movie from South Korea, what the hell was that all about?’’ Trump said, drawing laughter from the crowd.
Neon, the US film production and distribution company backing ‘‘Parasite,’’ hit back at the president on Twitter.
‘‘Understandable, he can’t read,’’ the company tweeted, referencing the movie’s English subtitles.
