[Best Pick] The Platform: Darkest Human Desire In Vertical Classes

😈Hey guys! Welcome back to the exciting movie time in [Best Pick]!😨


In this time, we would like to enjoy another splendid and horror film The Platform



One day Goreng wakes up with his future colleague Trimagasi in the 33rd level of a prison-style place, crossed by a hole where a platform descends with meal remains left from the tenants from higher levels. Trimagasi knows the rules that govern this mysterious place: two people per level and an unknown number of them. If you go upwards you survive… but think too much and you will descend again. If you are at the bottom where the food barely arrives, you cannot trust anyone except your guts.

Through its metaphor, the film argues that there is more than enough money, food, and resources to go around, but overconsumption inevitably leads to inequality, and the wealthy are not inclined (or incentivized) to share. 

The film perfectly parallels the trap society has sprung upon itself, but the metaphor is so fitting, that the filmmakers struggled to reach a conclusion – if there was a solution elegant enough to convey through a simple story, then we’d have figured it out by now, surely.

Critic reviews for the movie:

  • “Ultimately, The Platform might not have that much to say… but what it does say, it says effectively and ruthlessly, eschewing a tap on the shoulder for a punch in the face instead.”

  • “A must-see in our increasingly unequal world, Gaztelu-Urrutia’s astonishing debut makes a strong case for the masses to eat the rich.”
  • “A minimalist and unpredictable nightmare that doesn’t hesitate to show us the monstrous side of society and human nature.”

Can’t wait any longer to see this film! Let’s enjoy the wonderful trailer right now!

That’s all for today’s [Best Pick]!
