      "Hunger Platform" - Living is the Hardest

      Look at the starvation platform from a different angle - living is the hardest.

      The first point, why is the hunger platform the name of the movie? Hunger is because of the uneven distribution of food, so the further down you go, there are only empty bottles and cans left, and you may know that you have to eat food if you are shitting on it. , the further down there is not much food left, and can only kill people in order to live to eat people. The platform refers to the prison pit,...

      metaphors are too direct

      This is indeed the darkest and scariest side of human nature. It's not a horror movie but I think it's really scary. The sense of the scene and what it conveys are too scary. Even the male lead, I don't understand what it means at the end. The ending is an illusion, the male protagonist failed, and the Asian woman, like him, was turned into a murderous lunatic by the environment. The movie really hits the audience hard from start to finish. But the metaphor of class is too realistic. The...

      Are human beings really saved?

      Are human beings really saved?

      ——Feelings of watching "The Hunger Platform"

      This is a dystopian story, more realistic than Huxley's Brave New World, more rational than "Us" and more reflective than Orwell's "1984" and "Animal Farm." Rich in imagination, the structure of the story is direct, simple and concise, the characters are simplified and the lines are thick, it is obvious that the creators have consciously paid...

      human nature and class

      The prison pit on the 333rd floor is exploited layer by layer, from the upper layer to the throat to the lower layer to kill each other, cutting meat and eating, extremely cruel and so realistic. The various metaphors in the film almost point to the mainstream issues in today's society, the issue of race, the issue of trust, the destruction of idealism, the sharing of communism... In the end, the protagonist Glenn wants to distribute food to every layer of people, but Had to hurt a lot of...

      bus stop

      I still have to go to work on a typhoon day, and part of the subway is out of service, which happens to be where I am. A group of people stopped at the bus station in front of the house, and they were all crowded waiting for a bus to come. The last car can squeeze three more at the door, and the next car can't squeeze at all. It was almost half past eight, so some people tried to force it up, but they couldn't even stretch a leg. I originally wanted to go to the previous platform, thinking...

      Another presentation of The Human Centipede. Designing installations to engage in social experiments can almost become an independent film genre. Hierarchical exploitation does not lead to resistance to injustice and spontaneous solidarity, but to killing each other at the same level. "Who the fuck would bring books in?!" (Antonia San Juan isn't...

      This is no metaphor, this is the living reality. And there is no solution at all, so the ending is just an illusion, or, in other words, the xx of...

      Very straightforward social class fables, especially the first half, with various mappings to the real society, are quite interesting. The second half of the presentation on top-down change and bottom-up communication is well-intentioned, but basically abandons narrative and becomes a purely social experiment in a prison setting. However, the director should not have the ambition to construct a commercial story. As a netflix online movie, the pattern is still...

      Since human beings consciously began to divide clans, territories, races, nations, countries, etc., the walls are no longer just reality and imagination, nor are they vertical and horizontal. When the Creator created human beings, he probably knew that the only destination of human beings is self-generation, narcissism, self-humiliation, and...

      Well planned above, not necessarily well executed below. What I want to express below is not necessarily accepted by the above. The fairness that I want below is extremely greedy once it is put in another...

    Movie plot

    A "dystopian" citizen, Goreng, voluntarily imprisoned himself and promised to increase social mobility after his release. However, because of his imprisonment, he became so radical that he was stuck in a pit and had to rely on a daily food supply. The table fell from the sky to solve it. Exquisite dishes were initially placed on the table, but after the feast of two prisoners on each floor, it gradually became more and more messy and...

    Evaluation action

    The film is a sci-fi thriller with a peculiar style. Although the story is not particularly satisfying, it is indeed a rare sight and novelty in terms of setting, and it is at least memorable. The theme and setting of the film, with the help of the harshest prison environment, creates a strong cannibalistic conflict, so that the audience can quickly get the thrilling atmosphere of the film. It is also an excellent subject that attracts...
