The Platform - A devilish recipe
Updated: Jul 26, 2020
Netflix timed this Spanish film release to perfection, though the wait was more than an year. It does draw parallels with the ongoing crisis the world is going through. This social parable film carries the age old message in a insane and brutal fashion. The concept is a borrowed one ( i am not naming the films) but the clever execution and treatment is something you need to experience. Its an uneasy watch so take your chances. With a tight script and short run time this concept gets improvised with a class leading 3rd act which is bound to get tons of criticism. I am damn damn impressed and the meaning behind the ending will be a discussion point in many many forums. I dont want to tell you what the story is about, but this opening voice over will give an idea, "There are three types of people in the world: Those at the top, those at the bottom and those who fall." Its self contained horror taken to a different level questioning the whole civilization. I am watching it again soon.
Verdict - 4/5(Section 333)
Caution : Dont attempt to watch this while eating food.
