TIFF 2019 (Film #9)
The Panna Cotta is the message!
YES. Fucking YES. This is one of the most disgusting, depraved, yet intelligent and thoughtful, not to mention FUN science fiction movies of this decade. I’m simply floored that something so simple is so effective without having a ton of plot or resolution to drive it. This is pure sci-fi. Science Fiction as allegory to the max, discussing the issue of over population vs over consumption, showing how the people at the top have the ability to take more than anyone else and shit all over those below. While those below fight and die for scraps.
Pure insanity while still restrained enough to not be a constant 100% maximum overdrive. Also made me think about my own consumption in my daily life.
One of the very best films at TIFF. And if there is a better Midnight Madness this year, I’ll be damned.
