Snowpiercer ★★★★½

I suspect that as mainstream action-adventure films get more and more homogeneous Snowpiercer will continue to seem like a bizarre outlier, a genuinely biting and disturbing satirical future with an actual Avenger as its central hero (or so it seems for most of the movie, anyway). The only real concession to Hollywood that I can see is all that shaky cam, but the action and violence tends to shine through it, especially on the big screen. This gave me a headache but I'll get over it.
