The Platform, 2019 - ★★★

The concept of a prison where shared food is distributed through a vertical chain of cells is interesting and will executed here. We have an on the nose representation of class structure and haves and have nots but this film falls well short when compared to more polished works like Parasite. This is one of the most vile and nauseating movies I've seen. A guy literally poops on another guy's face. The ending seems abrupt and there are so many unanswered questions. It wasn't nothing though and it's worth a watch on Netflix. I'll never think of a buffet the same way again.
