The Platform is such a brutal and emotionally resonant film that it has lingered in my head for hours. It’s message is so relevant today and it shows what horrific lengths people will go to stay alive.
This movie improves so much over the course of its run time. It has such an interesting concept and at first it seems to falter under the weight of its ideas but soon enough it finds it footing and achieves something new.
