For its small scale, it’s a reasonably effective provocation, especially when it leans into crunchy Carpenter-esque dystopian actioner mode, unloading doses of grisly ultra-violence as the protagonists plot and devise strategies for escape and bucking the prison’s oppressive traps. Done with Contagion and need to expand your quarantine viewing? This fleet, nasty piece of work will certainly do the trick.

Provoking, chilling, visceral, and engaging like nothing I’ve seen before. An example of, in my eyes, a perfect film. I couldn’t tear myself from the screen. Already one of my all-time favourites.

The Platform seasons its robust economics creed with devilishly dark humour, and a palpable sense of danger.

Gaztelu-Urrutia's allegory is clear. What he's after, though, isn't as simple as eat the rich. He's curious about how the poor devour each other.

The movie's message, however simple it may be, is definitely hard to ignore. Even as much as we might want to try.
