Science-fiction horror - a genre not limited to scares by human standards, and truly done justice to by a Spanish film called The Platform.
The premise of this supremely unsettling film is a vertical prison where those on top get what appears to be michelin-star food service, while those below starve.
It's a brutal look at how the human condition is wired to work for its own benefit, even when a person has more than he needs.
If you're looking for a visceral work that doesn't shy away from blood, filth, and questions about our existence, watch this.
Such a powerful movie. Watch Netflix's The Platform and you'll see how the metaphors of this movie are relevant in today's time. pic.twitter.com/GvRQaqER0R— 𝒕𝒓𝒊𝒔𝒉𝒂 (@trshaconde) April 5, 2020

Netflix: The Platform is very timely to our situation today. The ones up there won’t listen. The ones below have no choice. It takes solidarity to survive. But not everyone is willing to cooperate. pic.twitter.com/HvvKlJvCHt— Phoenix Sy 🔥 (@ItsPhoenixSy) April 2, 2020

the new Netflix's horror movie The Platform (2020) is profound as well as suspenseful. it aptly allegorizes human greed, social classes, asymmetric distribution of wealth, capitalism....all while keeping me on the edge of my seat. pic.twitter.com/ZwYOVSkh8t— rafi (@polysuccharides) April 7, 2020

Watched The Platform on Netflix. Although bleak, brutal, gory, and with a mostly pessimistic message, I found it to be a compelling critique of the limits of our broken trickle down economic model (where those with priority access to free $$$ take more than needed & rest starves) pic.twitter.com/edDwvS9o2f— Mr A.C.Sloth ⚡ (@cloudzombi) April 5, 2020
