Synopsis

A mysterious place, an indescribable prison, a deep hole. An unknown number of levels. Two inmates living on each level. A descending platform containing food for all of them. An inhuman fight for survival, but also an opportunity for solidarity.

Our Take

7.0
Bilal Zouheir

The Platform is the closest thing to Parasite released so far. This interesting Spanish movie is about 90% a science-fiction drama and 10% a horror movie. It’s an allegory set in a future where prisoners live in vertical cells, and each cell has to wait for the cell above it to eat to get food.

Depending on the floor where prisoners wake up, they might not get any food at all. This creates for disturbing situations that are hard to see as not representative of our modern societies.

General opinion seems to be that this movie is smart because it is a cynical capitalist allegory. It really has nothing to say, and doesn’t work as a decent movie on its own thanks to unmotivated character choices and image planting with no payoff. Fake deep garbage.

Not a “good” movie but entertaining if you’re in the mood for a sci-fi horror.
