They just want to see you miserable so they can feel a little better.
This is a glaring critique on the evils of capitalism.
The working class are herded like cattle, branded with corporate sponsorships, and exploited beyond the point of mental and physical exhaustion - all for the prospect of collecting a cash reward as a means to survive in a hopeless society that doesn’t care about them.
This is us now.
This film is beautifully composed. It’s shot well, edited to perfection, performed by some of the best actors for the part, and overall just a beautifully pessimistic film. I’m a sucker for a film that starts out with completely gutting a child’s innocence in the first five minutes. And the ending speaks to me in such a profound way that it frightens me a bit.
