The Platform (2019)

A mysterious place, an indescribable prison, a deep hole. Two inmates living on each level. An unknown number of levels. A descending platform containing food for all of them. An inhuman fight for survival, but also an opportunity for solidarity.

I had a nightmare about this movie. Not even from watching it, just from reading a synopsis of this.

The premise was intriguing but the ending was such a letdown. Really tired of movies with such cop-out endings -- simply cutting to black before we find out what happens isn't the same thing as leaving things open to interpretation. It's not artistic, it's just a cliffhanger that never resolves.

So, this was Cube plus Snowpiercer, basically? And yeah, the ending was a total cop-out.
