Spanish dystopian parable set in a vertical prison in which a platform of delectables descends down the structure’s hundreds of floors, offering those on top a feast and those on bottom little to eat except each other. The movie debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September of 2019, but hit Netflix at the onset of a coronavirus quarantine that reinforced many of the film’s themes.
“If on our platform, instead of food, we had put toilet paper or facemasks, we would be talking about the same thing, about the selfishness that lies deep in our hearts.” – The Platform director Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia
